Evacuations underway in Pasco after hole opens in ground, boat falls in

County officials have begun tagging doors at nearby streets, in case homeowners need to quickly escape. Someone had called about a "depression" under a boat parked next to the house in Lake Padgett Estates in Land O' Lakes.

According to Pasco County Fire Rescue, one home is a complete loss and the second home is a 60 percent loss.

Whited said the hole grew in a matter of minutes.

Within two hours, the sinkhole was 200 feet wide (61 meters) and 50 feet deep, said Guthrie, who spoke with reporters late Friday morning.

Firefighters arrived at the residence to discover a hole about the size of a swimming pool.

No injuries have been reported.

The White House blueprint would cut $2 trillion in mandatory spending, including $1.9 trillion on health care. The short video, issued by the White House, was released onto its YouTube channel.

The sinkhole is threatening other homes in the area.

Sinkholes are stabilized by boring holes into the ground and injecting concrete. The home was sold in 2015.

Luckily, the residents had already left to go to work but firefighters did manage to rescued two dogs from inside the home.

At least 10 surrounding homes were evacuated.

"We're now at a situation where we're trying to conserve property, but Mother Nature is going to take what Mother Nature is going to take", Guthrie said.

The Red Cross is on the way to the scene to help families affected.
