    A Massive Sinkhole Swallowed Part Of A Florida House (Photos)

    On Tuesday, a family in Apopka, Florida — about 30 minutes northwest of Orlando — called 9-1-1 when they noticed a corner of their bathroom was descending into the ground.

    "I saw big, deep cracks in the bathroom. The tub was sinking and the window was coming loose," homeowner Ellen Miller told local news station WFTV. "I said, 'It's time to go.'"

    By the time emergency workers arrived, Miller and her family had moved all the possessions they could to their front lawn. Just minutes later, they watched as the rest of their house was swallowed by a chasm roughly 25 feet long and 15 feet wide.

    The family had only recently witnessed the massive destruction of Hurricane Irma.

    "We made it through the hurricane. We were really, really lucky, and then this," Miller told WFTV.
