CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) — An official at a resort near Orlando, Fla., where a 100-foot sinkhole has swallowed part of a villa has said he's awaiting the results of inspections to determine if there's been damage to two other buildings there.
Summer Bay Resort President Paul Caldwell says that before Sunday night, there had been no signs a sinkhole was developing. He says the resort underwent geological testing when it was built about 15 years ago, showing the ground to be stable.
By early Monday, nearly a third of the structure at the resort had collapsed. All 105 guests staying in the villa were evacuated, as were those in the neighboring buildings. No injuries were reported. The villa, with 24 three-story units, was reported as a total loss.
