Here Are 7 Sinkholes In Florida That Will Leave You Terrified Of Earth

Of all the things we have to be scared of in Florida, from alligators to hurricanes, I think sinkholes might be the scariest. I don’t know about you, but the idea of the earth just swallow up your house with no warning, possibly with you still inside, scares the crap out of me. Although Florida is the worst state in the country for sinkholes, the risk is highest in the center of our west coast, with many areas that have very little risk. Fatalities do occur, but luckily, they’re rare.

Scary, right? Just remember, sinkholes aren’t all bad, a lot of Florida’s lakes, swimming holes, and jaw-dropping underwater caves started out as sinkholes.

Have you ever encountered a sinkhole near where you live? Please share your experiences with us in the comments below!
