A Lake County resort near Disney World sinks into the ground late Sunday. No one was injured, reports the Orlando Sentinel. From the time they realized something was wrong to the time the buildings collapsed at the Summer Bay Resort, guests had about 15 minutes to evacuate, many leaving personal belongings behind. 

The sinkhole is about 60 feet in diameter and 15 feet deep, reports the Sentinel. The resort is about 7 miles west of the Walt Disney World resort.
