Second sinkhole discovered in same Florida neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (KYTX/CNN) -  Authorities in Florida are keeping their eyes on another sinkhole.

This one is just three miles from the one that formed beneath a home last week, swallowing a man who is presumed dead. The sinkhole is located between two homes in Hillsborough County. There's no reported damage to the homes, but a fence dividing the properties is broken.

Authorities say the two sinkholes are not geologically connected and have not imposed an evacuation. One resident living nearby says inspectors have told her family that her home sits over multiple sinkholes.
