Weeks after a man was entombed in a sinkhole in Seffner, Florida officials say another home in Florida was cracking due to another sinkhole. This time of year is unofficially "sinkhole" season in Florida according to state Geologist Jonathan Arthur. Why? The sinkholes coincide with the rainy season in Florida.
Weather and man-made factors cause sinkholes. Acidic rain over time eats away at limestone and causes sinkholes. According to Arthur both the wet weather and the dry weather can cause this caverns. Droughts cause the soil and sediment to collapse and therefore the formation of a sinkhole is complete.
Geologist are not quite sure how the sinkhole formed under the home that swallowed up 37 year old Jeff Bush last week. Experts said it was too dangerous to retrieve Bush's body from the hole and so he was laid to rest in it last week.
