Transcript for Sinkhole Strikes Back
Zblifl now to Florida this evening and those incredible images we showed you last night here. That town on alert. Yet another sinkhole, just hours ago. It comes after the first one swallowed this car in 15 minutes flat. Tonight, families have been evacuated, and ABC's Steve osunsami is on the scene. Reporter: Just when authorities outside Tampa were thinking this ten-foot wide sinkhole had stopped growing, another one, five feet wide, opened up at the home next door. And they say it's possible they could see a third. Sediment is still very weak. So, it could move. Reporter: Six frightened families still in hotels tonight. While engineers here listen to the ground and decide what to do. It's scary. I don't know if we're going to have a place to go to or not. Reporter: They'll most likely pour sand and clay into the hole, and hope it holds. That's what they did almost one year ago, 13 miles away in dunedin, Florida, and we were there. We saw them haul in more than ten trucks of sand, to fill this massive 90-foot wide hole that swallowed a large pool and destroyed two homes. And look at this same spot today. Two empty lots looking like nothing happened. The property is now for sale, and the realtor says it's probably the safest land you can buy in Florida. Tonight, at the bottom of this sinkhole, there's a fairly new car and engineers are telling families they'll have to remove it before they fill the hole. Steve osunsami, ABC news, holiday, Florida.
