A gaping hole opened up on a homeowner's front lawn.

Residents of a Norristown home have that sinking feeling this morning.

The hole started opening up in the 1000 block of Sterigere Street.

The sink hole is about 25-feet long and 8-feet wide.

Officials have not yet figured out how deep it is and don't yet know why the ground opened up.
