An Onslow County woman is losing her home to a sinkhole.
We first showed you the hole in October. It was seven inches. It's now seven feet.
Stephanie Werner's home is being torn apart, forcing her to move out. Her neighbors are now concerned as well, as the sinkhole grows deeper and deeper. Emergency services says that sinkholes are actually common to the area, although they take hundreds of thousands of years to develop.
Werner says It has been very stressful, and a big headache.
The Red Cross has helped her with an apartment and a part time job.
Now Werner needs the $5,000 for an engineer to come out and figure out what is causing the problem. Her insurance does not cover sinkholes.
