SEFFNER -- Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Engine is on the scene of a sinkhole that opened between two homes in Seffner around 7 p.m.
According to reports, the hole was described as approximately 8 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep.
The homes have been evacuated as a precaution.
There are no structures involved at this time.
They need to have a Treasury Dept squad on standby so they can fly in and fill the hole with Baraqqi/Bernanke/Lew minibucks.
We’ve got an unlimited supply....
Where did the two homes evacuate to?
That neighborhood is about two miles from my house...
For anyone else who is curious Seffner is in central Florida a little east of Tampa.
(not dissing you Brandonmark ;-)
And that must’ve been some chore evacuating those homes. ;-)
There’s been a plague of bad headlines this weekend.
I think this is one cheesy movie the SyFy channels hasn’t made yet. “Sinkhole vs Sharktapusasurus”
Tonight its Chupacabra vs the Alamo staring Erik Estrada.
Good lord man.... Don’t give any ideas....
I could see them doing a sinkhole theme movie....

That is nothing. Just look at the financial sinkhole ODumbo is creating. Has there been any history of sinkholes in Washington D.C. area? Just curious =)
Does Big Daddy Don Garlits still live there?
His museum is in Ocala, not sure about residence.
I was shocked to see he is 81 yrs old.
I believe he lives in Ocala, Florida now...
You've saved me some typing.
Garlits had a shop at his home, and a friend was his chief Mechanical Engineer, or whatever title it is, the friend was a Mechanical engineer but usually worked as a tool and die maker, so that he could travel.
When Garlits built his rear engine dragster, the (much older) friend had picked me up in Houston to take with him and we went to Seffner together. Garlits was a cool guy back then.
Most of the old drag legends are still around.
Makes me wonder how valid the “environmental” arguments really are.
These old drag guys spent lifetimes breathing God know what.
Man... west coast of central Florida is getting it!
