A sinkhole that started out the size of a small swimming pool and continued to grow in Florida swallowed a boat, destroyed two homes, and prompted officials to evacuate residents from 10 other homes on Friday
The hole quickly grew to 200 feet wide—about two-thirds the length of a football field—and 50 feet deep. Pasco County Fire Chief Shawn Whited told reporters that no one was at the home when crews arrived just after 7:30am.
Firefighters were able to get two dogs out of the home and retrieve some belongings before the first home started collapsing into the quickly-expanding hole. By early afternoon, the home next door also had been destroyed by the sinkhole. No injuries have been reported.
