A massive sinkhole opened up in a yard in Volusia County, Central Florida, on Friday morning, July 31, 2020.
Rosario Rizzo, the homeowner of the yard, said the sinkhole measured around 74 square m (800 square feet) and even swallowed a large tree.
He noted that the sinkhole nor the tree collapse did not make any noise, and he was unaware of the incident until the Sherriff's Office informed him.
"My wife is terrified, every night and every day she's just terrified of it getting bigger and really affecting our life," he told FOX 35.
Other smaller sinkholes were also reported nearby.
