Second sinkhole in Florida


(CNN) Florida officials are monitoring another sinkhole, three miles from the deadly sinkhole that swallowed a man sleeping in his bed last week.

The earth opened up between two homes in Hillsborough County earlier Monday.

There's no reported damage to the homes, but a fence dividing the properties is broken.

County officials say the two sinkholes are not geologically connected and have not imposed an evacuation.

One resident living nearby says inspectors have told her family that her home sits over multiple sinkholes.
