Friend of mine works at the resort where it happened, just got home and posted about his day feeding refugees at work. He said they shut down a huge part of the resort and all the restaurant staff was squeezed into the one kitchen left open to help take care of them. There's a video at the link, and his description didn't do the images justice, but it sounds like a crazy day.
This isn't a FL bashing thing, but serious question - would you reconsider moving there (or one of the other states succeptible, they're listed in the video) because of it, or take your chances like hurricane and tornado prone areas?Answer Question

Sinkholes seem scarier to me because they're unpredictable. Except in rare circumstances, if there's a tornado or an ice storm headed for my house, I know about it before it happens. Hurricanes get days of warning. A sinkhole is just do de do minding my own business HOLY SHIT MY HOUSE IS GONE. True. But hurricanes - you have to remember that we're used to the idea of them. There's a lot of people (even me sometimes) that get lax because there's been X storms this season that haven't come anywhere near us even though they said they would, so when we hear that this one will, we're just like "yeah, whatever" and then a few days later, we're in the yard going "oh, shit, they weren't kidding." lol I do get your point, though, and yeah, they are more unpredictable. There can sometimes be warning signs, though, for those who are aware of them. Check out page 10 of
