Sinkhole near a house - level 3
An elderly woman has been forced to evacuate her home after a sinkhole opened up in front of her house.
The hole started in the driveway and then began widening towards the garage.
Authorities say the crater is 20 feet wide and 15 feet deep, although firefighters say it does not appear to be growing anymore.
Two houses either side of the property have also been evacuated as a precaution.
A 72 year-old woman had been living in the house for over 20 years. It’s not known whether she’ll ever be allowed to live there again.
