Are Sinkholes Near Me?
In Florida, sinkhole activity can literally occur anywhere, with the highest concentration in west central Florida due to the karst limerock environment. The various geological areas of our state pose a different level of risk for sinkhole activity and are influenced by long-term weather trends such as heavy rain and drought.
The map on the right shows the locations of sinkholes reported since 1954 in the Florida Geological Survey’s statewide sinkhole database. It does not include all sinkholes in Florida. You may enlarge the map by clicking on the thumbnail to the right or by clicking here.
