Residents in Seffner, Florida, got the unnerving news Monday that a second sinkhole emerged about three kilometres away from the one that swallowed a man in his bedroom last week.
“It happened to that man, it happened to our neighbour — it could happen to anyone,” said Katia Vargas. “Oh God, it’s scary.”
Geotechnical engineer John Marquardt offered little confort to residents, saying that “there is not much you can do” to prepare for a sinkhole.
