Officials say there is concern that the sinkhole could merge into a nearby lake. No one was home at the time and Pasco County Fire Rescue authorities did enter the home to retrieve two dogs and some belongings.

At 7:25 a.m. on Friday, 911 dispatchers received a call about a boat that was falling into a hole that had formed at 21835 Ocean Pine Drive in Land O' Lakes. It is now estimated to be about 2-hundred feet wide, filled with water. Authorities said there have been no reported injuries.

Pasco County Assistant Administrator Kevin Guthrie said 11 homes have been evacuated and are considered unsafe.

According to the listing on Zillow, the property was a "repaired sinkhole" home.

Officials say Duke Energy cut power to about 100 homes in the neighborhood.

Guthrie said that the question of safety was under control and, although it had been a frightening experience for residents, it was now a question of trying to conserve property.

By midmorning, the sinkhole had expanded to about 200 feet in width and 50 feet in depth. "Mother Nature is going to take what Mother Nature takes". The American Red Cross is assisting residents who've been displaced.
