Cleanup Planned For Florida Sinkhole, 5 Homes Still Evacuated

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 17 July 2017  (1 week ago)
(AP) — Cleanup efforts at the site of a sinkhole that swallowed two Florida homes and jeopardized a third house will begin in earnest on Wednesday, as county officials, geologists and insurance adjusters begin the process of figuring out what to do with the properties, local officials said Monday. It opened up Friday morning and grew to 225 feet (68 meters) in diameter and 50 feet (15 meters) deep, taking with it the two homes and a boat. Kevin Guthrie, Pasco County's assistant administrator for public safety, said engineers were still trying to determine "where the safe edge is at." All of the homeowners had some kind of insurance.
