How would you feel if your backyard disappeared? And a week before Christmas?
We have to commiserate with townhouse owners in Sunrise, Florida, where luxury townhouses stay empty this Holiday season after their backyard fell into a canal. Residents have been told to stay away from their homes. Many of the Christmas gifts and Christmas trees are locked inside.
Six townhouses have been evacuated and Fire officials have checking the area to find out if the homes will follow the backyards into the canal.
The incident has been stressful to the displaced families, especially coming so close to the holidays, and presently it is not known if the townhouses can ever be lived in again.
One of the residents, whose entire backyard disappeared, said “"It's all still very shocking. You expect a hurricane to hit, but not a canal to eat up your house."
