Nearby residents have been evacuated as cracks, pops and crashes echoed from the hole.

The sinkhole straddles two back yards on Robmar Road, west of Pinehurst Road. The ground is so unstable both homes will need to be demolished, Dunedin Fire Department Chief Jeff Parks said.

The trouble began about 5:40 a.m. when homeowner Mike Dupre’s daughter heard a hammering noise.

“She woke us up and saved us,” Dupre said.

He stepped out onto his screened-in porch at 1112 Robmar and found it already had sunk 3 feet into the ground.

“We needed to get out of the house as fast as possible,” he said.

As the hole grew, it swallowed the porch and a new boat.
