The photos in this post belong to our good friend, Tim Jacques, who also lives in Stone Creek.
We have received heavy rains over the past few days as a result of Tropical Storm Debby churning away in the Gulf of Mexico. The latest word is that the storm will come ashore somewhere near Cedar Key tomorrow, head east across Florida and go out into the Atlantic. What happens then is anyone's guess!
Meanwhile, because there is so much limestone underneath the soil in central Florida, sinkholes often develop when heavy rains filter down around the porous limestone to wash away the soil. In some places, sinkholes have sunk entire houses.
In Stone Creek, we've had several sinkholes develop. With more rain on the way, we're keeping our fingers crossed!
The photos tell the story. And thank you, Tim! For more photos from Tim, check out his blog here.
