Hernando County Neighborhood Swallowed by Sinkholes
"It's crazy. It's absolutely crazy."
Anthony DiGiorgi has lived in his Springhill home for 12 years. He says sinkholes have always been a concern, but Tropical Storm Debby has made things much worse.
"It looks like it's going to get worse. There's no doubt about it. I can see impressions in the road that weren't there before."
At the end of his street there is a large sink hole about 15 feet wide and 15 feet deep. Sheriff's deputies have the area blocked off from traffic.
They say more than a dozen sinkholes have opened up in the last few days. One sits directly under a house next door to resident Jenny Mojico's. She's nervous because she doesn't have insurance.
She says, "To get insurance, you have to have an inspector come to your house, pay $90. Then, he decides whether I can have insurance or not. Then, it will cost me over $2000, if I qualify."
DiGiorgi says he doesn't have insurance either.
"I dropped coverage a few years ago. Three or four thousand dollars a year, it's kind of hard to keep."
Though the rain has stopped, with several areas still flooded, they're crossing their fingers they won't need it.
