Second sinkhole in Florida

It's the second sinkhole to appear in the Tampa, Florida, area in less than a week. The ground gave way at the fence line between two homes Monday. But authorities say this sinkhole poses no immediate danger. It happened just a few miles from the massive sinkhole that opened under a home last Thursday, swallowing up a man as he lay sleeping in bed. Local officials say it's unlikely his body will ever be retrieved. The man's brother and four other people escaped unharmed. On Monday finished demolishing the house and sealing it off. Florida environmental officials say sinkholes are caused by the state's porous bedrock.
