Engineers at the sinkhole at the Mosaic Plant in Polk County are using laser-mapping equipment to see just how deep that sinkhole is. They’ve determined that hole is 220 feet deep from the very top of the gypsum stack, taking it some 30 feet below ground level.

Seeing a snake isn’t unusual at all here in Florida, but seeing one slithering up your windshield when you’re stopped on 19 in Dunedin is.
