Florida law defines a sinkhole as “a land form created by subsidence of soil, sediment, or rock as underlying strata are dissolved by groundwater. A sinkhole may form by collapse into subterranean voids created by the dissolution of limestone or dolostone or by subsidence as these strata are dissolved.”

 

Florida Law defines catastrophic ground cover collapse as geological activity that results in all the following:

  • The abrupt collapse of the ground cover
  • A depression in the ground cover clearly visible to the naked eye
  • Structural damage to the building, including the foundation
  • The insured structure being condemned and ordered to be vacated by the governmental agency authorized by law to issue such an order for that structure.
