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

The ground opened up between two homes in Hillsborough county 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.

One resident says an inspector told her family her home sits over several sinkholes.
