While sinkholes are a way of life for many people
who live in Central Florida they are much more
common in northern Lake and southern
Marion and Sumter counties. There have
been literally dozens of sinkholes that have
opened up in this area in the last several years.
According to experts, the reason for that is
simple: the underground geology makes
sinkholes a virtual certainty -- which in
times of extreme drought, residents should
be aware of the hazards the ground
they walk on can create.
