Before you buy a home, check out this sinkhole map

A court has upheld one couple's wire fraud conviction after they did not report a sinkhole at their home.

The pair collected over $150,000 in insurance money when a sinkhole opened up at their Spring Hill home. 

Prosecutors say they kept the sinkhole "a secret" from buyers.

A family with five kids later moved in and had to evacuate when the sinkhole opened up again.

For peace of mind when buying a home, you can refer to this map of all recorded sinkhole activity in our area. Just search for an address in the upper right-hand corner. From there, you can zoom out on the map and see where sinkholes have been recorded nearby.
