The massive sinkhole in Land O Lakes, Florida was a big eye opener to many homeowners of the risk that sinkholes oppose. The board of Pasco County commissioners granted 1.3 million to be spent in removing debris and filling the sinkhole. This sinkhole is continuing to grow. Sinkholes are an ongoing problem in Florida which could cost you your home and property.
