(WESH/CNN) - Hurricane Irma's impact on Florida has taken many forms, including fatalities, massive destruction, and power outages.

And Wednesday, it manifested itself in the form a giant sinkhole caused by storm water.

The jagged cavity opened up behind a middle school in Apopka, devouring a chunk of the West Orange trail.

Residents are urged to steer clear of the area.
