Sinkholes and sinkhole damage can be discreet or severe

Sometimes sinkholes are revealed suddenly as they swallow sections of major roadways or even when buildings disappear. This makes for the great evening news, but it is very rare. The more common sinkhole damage is much more subtle. Sinkholes may appear as a slight depression in a lawn, a leaning tree, or a fence post. When they occur underneath or around a house or building they can cause cracking of the interior walls, ceilings, floor slabs, and tiles. Sinkholes will cause damage to building foundations, exterior walls, driveways, and even pools and pool decks. 

Florida is prone to sinkholes 

Most of Florida is prone to sinkhole development because it is underlain by limestone or dolomite, which is susceptible to dissolution by naturally flowing groundwater. Ever so slowly, this forms underground channels, voids, and cavities in the limestone or dolomite. Sinkholes form with the eventual collapse of the overlying soils down into the channels, voids, and cavities below.
