    A new sinkhole has been found in Seffner between two houses.

    Just weeks after a sinkhole swallowed a Florida man, killing him in his sleep in his Seffner home, another sinkhole has opened between two houses in the same town.

    The latest sinkhole appeared on Saturday and is estimated to be about 8 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep, according to WFLA.

    Both homes on either side of the hole were evacuated as a precaution.

    Seffner is the town where 37-year-old Jeff Bush was swallowed by a sinkhole that completely demolished his bedroom three weeks ago. Five others who were in the house escaped unharmed.

    That sinkhole was estimated to be 20 feet wide and 20 feet deep. The house was later demolished.
