Second sinkhole scares Seffner

Posted: Updated:

SEFFNER, FL (WFLA) -- For the second time in under a week, a sinkhole has been discovered in Seffner, Florida, which is just west of Tampa.

The earth opened up between two homes Monday afternoon.

The roughly 12-feet wide and 5-feet deep sinkhole has not caused any damage to the homes, but a fence dividing the properties is broken.

Monday's sinkhole is less than 2 miles from where one opened last week - killing Jeff Bush.

Hillsborough County officials say the two sinkholes are not geologically connected and have not imposed an evacuation.

Sink holes have devoured a lot of land in Florida, a state with a susceptible limestone foundation and heavy development.

Hillsborough County officials will continue to monitor this sinkhole to see if it grows.
