Winter Haven, Florida -- What is still being described as a sinkhole continues to expand beneath a parking lot near Legoland in Winter Haven.

The sinkhole opened up Thursday morning on Cypress Gardens Blvd. in the parking lot of a Publix shopping center - right across the street from Legoland.

Police say the hole was about 30 feet wide and 5 feet deep Thursday morning. By Thursday night, ABC reported the crater at 70 feet wide and 15 feet deep.

The parking lot continues to buckle in and around the crater. The property owners have contacted geologists to evaluate the situation.
