FOURTH sinkhole opens up in same Florida town where man was swallowed into the earth less than a month ago

A possible sinkhole has forced two families from their Florida duplex in the same area where another sinkhole opened under a man's bedroom, killing him less than a month ago.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue crews responded to a 911 call Tuesday evening and found that the Florida duplex in Seffner had buckled floors and cracked walls, but no sinkhole was visible, according to spokesman Ronnie Rivera.

Officials say the soil was soft around the home. They recommended that the residents spend the night somewhere else.
