Sinkholes are a fact of life in much of Florida. They can be small and relatively benign, but sometimes they are large, house-swallowing killers.
Chances are pretty good, if you've lived in the state for more than a few months, you've seen a sinkhole or heard reports of a sinkhole, but you've likely never seen one like the giant hole in the ground nicknamed "The Devil's Millhopper." It is a mammoth and ancient chasm in the earth, right in the middle of the city of Gainesville. It's also a state park and a National Natural Landmark.
FOX 35's Tom Johnson took a trip to the Devil's Millhopper to show you why it's so unique.
