SPRING HILL, FL (WTSP/CNN) – A huge sinkhole opened up outside of a Florida home over the weekend.

Reports indicate the hole is 30 feet deep and 40 feet wide, and Spring Hill, FL officials have deemed the home unsafe.

Now, the homeowner is forced to pack her belongings and leave, just 18 months after moving in.

Officials haven’t determined the exact cause for the sinkhole, but a private contractor suspects heavy rain over the weekend may have played a role.
