Woman forced out of home

By Daniel Dahm - Managing Editor --

SPRING HILL, Fla. - A large sinkhole opened in a Florida neighborhood, forcing the evacuation of a home.

The hole, estimated to be about 40 feet wide and 30 feet deep, opened in Spring Hill, causing structural damage to a home.

"It's devastating.  You don't expect it," said Michelle Parisik, the homeowner's daughter.  "The whole front of my mom's house is on a ledge, hanging pretty much."

Parisik, who lives in the home, is staying at a hotel while she figures out her next step.

Inspectors will continue to monitor the hole.
