A couple in the Village of Glenbrook woke up to a sinkhole at their doorstep.

A couple in the Village of Glenbrook is staying with friends after discovering a large sinkhole right outside their front door in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

The couple, who has resided in The Villages for about a dozen years, “heard a noise” and spotted the sinkhole at their home on Galesburg Court.

The couple has also been without power.

It is one of several sinkholes that have opened up here in Florida Friendliest Hometown after Hurricane Irma dumped as many as 10 inches of rain on parts of The Villages.

    Really scary! Unless the home is deemed inhabitable they must carry sinkhole coverage on their insurance policy to get this filled. It is Florida law that all insurance companies cover a home when the ground cover causes structural damage from a sinkhole.

    Lucky for them that they didn’t just walk out and not pay attention or this story would not be about a sinkhole at their front door. It pays to be attentive always. I hope that it doesn’t get bigger and take their house.
