A second sinkhole has appeared in the Tampa, Florida area, according to a March 4 The Epoch Times report. The second sinkhole opened between two homes on Monday. The first sinkhole actually destroyed a home and killed a man named Jeff Bush who was sleeping inside.
The second sinkhole has not caused any injuries or damage to structures, but the fence between the two Tampa area houses was damaged. Unfortunately, the first sinkhole was devastating.
This second sinkhole in Florida measures 12-feet around and 3 to 5 feet deep, which is smaller than the one who caused the man's death. The first sinkhole is 30-feet around and 60 feet deep.
According to Hillsborough County spokesman Willie Puz,
"It is not geologically connected."
It certainly sounds like a giant coincidence that two sinkholes would open just a few miles apart within a few days of each other. Of course, Florida is notorious for sinkholes, so perhaps this was just a coincidence.
Even so, many nearby neighbors intend to have their homes inspected to make sure nothing unusual is happening. It has to be scary to worry that your house could fall into a sinkhole at any moment.
It is most likely Jeff Bush never expected a sinkhole to swallow him along with his house last week.
