Tampa sinkhole has homeowners on edge

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - Some residents in suburban Tampa have a sinking feeling about the stability of their homes.

A sinkhole that swallowed a car earlier this week has grown at least five feet wider and seven feet deeper, and it's getting closer to buildings.

So far, eleven people who lived in one building at the complex have left their homes. County code officers say they worry bad weather could accelerate the hole's growth.
