Florida's Giant Sinkhole Now Claims SEVEN Homes...

Florida's giant sinkhole has now claimed SEVEN homes: Three more properties are condemned by the 260ft void that is still growing  

A seventh home has been condemned because of a Florida sinkhole that swallowed two homes in July. The seventh house was condemned Monday morning, after two were condemned Sunday and two on Friday. The sinkhole at Lake Padgett Estates in Tampa first opened up on July 14 and destroyed two homes when the ground caved in. The sinkhole got bigger Friday night and is now about 260 feet wide at its widest point. Crews brought in earth to stabilize the banks. Once the edges are stabilized, workers hope to remove debris.  Authorities hope to create a boat ramp so they can work from a barge, which will float on water in the sinkhole.   Overnight on Friday, an 80 by 10-foot-wide section of the sinkhole's banks collapsed.
