THE ACREAGE, Fla. - Out in the Acreage, most of their roads are flooded and more than a foot of rain fell on the area.
One road couldn't handle all the water though as it gave way Monday evening.
Rushing waters pour out from what use to be 40th Street North in the Acreage.
Now it's a waterfall flowing into a canal.
"It's just sad," a neighbor said. "There's millions of gallons of water up here so there it goes."
The hole was more than 4 feet deep and many residents like Nadine Meece are just happy it didn't give way as she was driving over it to go home.
"It's scary," she said. "I'm glad it wasn't doing that and I didn't see it on my way through or something."
Part of the dirt road near Coconut Boulevard is now one big sinkhole.
Mud from the road now floats in the canal and the Indian Trail Improvement District says this is one of two in roads in the Acreage.
They plan to close the road until the morning, because it's too dangerous to work on it at night.
"You think they're going to get this fixed in 24 hours," a neighbor said. "This is going to be twice the size in 24 hours. This is growing as we sit here. This is getting bigger and bigger and bigger."
It separates a road in two and releases gallons of water from the waterlogged Acreage.
An area where almost every side street is underwater.
"It's kind of phenomenon," Meece said. "It's nothing I've ever seen happen before. That's the first time in the 31 years I've lived here."
A first, neighbors never want to see again.
Indian Trail Improvement District officials say they have both pumps trying to clear out the flood waters from the roads.
