Growing sinkhole forces evacuation of homes

Pasco County officials are tagging nearby homes where they have not been able to make contact with occupants. Someone had called about a "depression" under a boat parked next to the house in Lake Padgett Estates in Land O' Lakes.

Pasco County Fire Chief Shawn Whited told reporters that no one was at the home when crews arrived just after 7:30 a.m. Within minutes, he said, "the hole opened up".

So far, the sinkhole has destroyed two homes.

At least 10 surrounding homes had to be evacuated as a safety precaution.

No injuries have been reported.
