While the newest sinkhole is nothing like the 30-foot wide and 100-foot deep sinkhole that opened under the Bush home, the new one was found on Cedar Tree Lane and was 5-foot deep and 12-foot wide. The sinkhole is endangering homes on the street, and residents are already being asked to evacuate.
Engineers were back Tuesday checking under the two houses on both sides of Jeff Bush's house to determine how far the sinkhole actually extends. So far they have said both houses are compromised as the caverns stretch deep underground.
Demolition of the Bush house started on Sunday and continued into Monday. Crews delicately used a backhoe to drag personal items the family owned out into the front yard so they had a chance to get what they wanted. Jeremy Bush was able to grab his brothers jacket and hat that he said he needed for closure.
Jeremy Bush has been questioning why his brothers body can't be removed from the house. While authorities have said they would like to try and remove Jeff Bush's body, they also said the situation is delicate and too dangerous to search for Jeff.
After the debris was removed the public got their first view of the sinkhole that swallowed Bush almost a week ago while he was sleeping. His brother Jeremy jumped into the hole to try and save his brother, but had to be saved by a sheriff's deputy when dirt started filling in around his legs.
Demolition crews finished their job Wednesday by dropping flowers into what is now Jeff Bush's grave as family, friends and strangers watched from the street in front of the house.
On Thursday crews finished filling the hole in with dirt, and will now determine what will happen with the empty lot next.
