This made news in Florida. They are common and usually do not kill anyone. This opened up under a man's bed when he was sleeping. He could not be rescued or found. The ground in still unsteady and made rescuing him unsafe. This is still in progress. The next door neighbors have evacuated their home because of the sinkholes may enlarge. The sinkhole was about 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep on Saturday

And today I heard there's another one close by. You better find a new location, girlfriend!

I wondered how close when they finally said where it happened.... So glad you are all right...

Ank and Shirley.... Sinkholes are common here in Florida, but a hole this deep is an exception. I suppose this made world news. They have one near this place, about a mile away.

Jan, this has been in the news here in Australia too, bad enough when this happens in an open area, but terrible when it takes a persons life.

Come to NL. We don't have beautiful warm weather. No, but we have nothing extreem. no holes in the ground, no tornados. Jan this is terrible

Everywhere in Florida could have sinkholes, not one anywhere near where I live. We have talked about coming back to Texas but where?

This has been the talk of the town here, too. All over the news. Thanks, Jan, I'd be so afraid! Come back to Texas!

Yes Morris, it is.

Maybe the snow isn't so bad after all, jan. Better than having the ground open up under your house.

I am still waiting to see the sinkhole in this home. In this morning's paper it was stated that another one appeared aboout 2 miles for the one in Seffner. Sinkholes are common when there are aquafirs, limestones and sand. This is the first time, I have seen this happen totally inside a house. Thanks for letting me know it made UK news.

Made news in UK too. Can't imagine anything more scary. can't even feel safe in own bed!
