Sinkhole causes villa collapse

13 August 2013 Last updated at 01:47 BST

A sinkhole has caused a section of a villa to collapse in a resort in Florida.

Around 30 percent of the three-storey building collapsed on Monday morning and there is concern about another section of the villa which is sinking.

About 20 people were evacuated from the building before the collapse.

Millions of dollars of damage is caused by sinkholes in Florida every year.
