More than a hundred holiday makers had to be evacuated from a Florida hotel in the USA after a massive sinkhole opened up underneath it.

It was caused by limestone rock underneath buildings being eroded by water, making a big hole in the ground.

A third of the hotel fell into the hole, and more than a hundred holiday makers had to be taken to safety.

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