A 60-foot-wide sinkhole formed under a resort in Florida early Monday morning, causing one building to partially collapse and a neighboring building is still sinking.

Guests at the Summer Bay Resort, about 10 minutes from Walt Disney World, heard windows cracking and other loud noises and began calling for help in the early morning hours.

According to CNN, rooms as high as the third floor of one building collapsed into the sinkhole. All 35 guests are accounted for. A nearby villa was also evacuated as a precaution.

Our floor is 50 feet underground.” – Maggie Ghamry, resort guest

Authorities on the scene believe it is getting deeper but couldn’t tell early Monday if it was expanding outward.
