Another Sinkhole Opens in Seffner, Florida

Brandon Patch – by Linda Chion Kenney

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue was on the scene Saturday night, March 23, where a sinkhole reportedly opened between two homes in Seffner.

It was the third reported sinkhole in Seffner since Feb. 28, when Jeffrey Bush 36, died after the bedroom he was sleeping in was consumed by a catastrophic sinkhole at 240 Faithway Drive.  

That sinkhole, described as “unprecedented,” caused the home to be demolished and the two neighboring homes to be evacuated, leaving many families, including the Wicker and Jaudon families, displaced.

A second sinkhole opened up in Seffner days later, between two homes, at 1204 and 1206 Cedar Tree Lane.

The sinkhole that opened March 23, at around 7 p.m., also opened between two homes, at 1427 Lake Shore Ranch Drive in Seffner, according to the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue report.

Officials described the sinkhole as “approximately 8 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep.” It stands about 1.7 miles and 3.4 miles from the Faithway Drive and  Cedar Tree Lane sinkholes, respectively.

“The homes have been evacuated as a precaution,” the late-night report notes.

There were “no structures involved at this time.”

Hillsborough County Code Enforcement was reported to be arriving on the scene.
