Florida Pool Pushed Out Of Ground After Heavy Rains

Popped pool in Holiday, Florida

The source website is calling this some kind of ‘reverse sinkhole’, which is definitely not the case. The article says there was a period of very heavy rain for about 11 days before this happened, with some areas seeing rainfall intensity up to 6.7 inches in 12 hours. It sounds like the water table rose to very close to the surface and buoyant forces pushed the pool out. The building inspector called it a ‘popped pool’.
