SEFFNER, Florida – A sinkhole in Seffner has caused the evacuation of 4 homes.
The sinkhole is reportedly 27 feet deep and 22 feet wide, roughly 1.5 miles from the sinkhole that swallowed a Seffner man in 2013.
The original call came from 11918 Clay Pitt Road.
Emergency crews have cleared the scene, and Code Enforcement has taken over.
Code Enforcement said they did not find any evidence the depression will expand, nor did they find any depressions near it.
Authorities said they do not believe the depression is any threat to anyone else; they will develop a plan to monitor the depression.
According to officials, the depression is on private property and will be the responsibility of the homeowners to contact their insurance company to fill it.
