Dunedin sinkhole filled, homeowners allowed back

Dunedin sinkhole filled, homeowners allowed back

DUNEDIN Fla. (970 WFLA) -- A Dunedin neighborhood looks a lot different Monday morning. 

It's minus two homes which have been demolished because of a giant sinkhole that opened up Thursday. 

Crews spent the weekend and Monday completing the task for filling that giant sinkhole with dirt. 

Dunedin Fire Chief Jeff Parks said it's now up to the property owners and insurers to sort things out.

“We have the whole property fenced off. I’m sure it will remain fenced off. From what I’m understanding, the property can never be built on again. So it’s just a matter of you know insurance companies following up with whatever the claims are gonna be,” Parks said.

Several families on Robmar Road were also displaced by the sinkhole. They are being allowed back home.
