Sinkhole stops growing after swallowing 2 Florida homes (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

LAND O' LAKES, Fla. -- A sinkhole that swallowed two homes and a boat has stopped growing, and officials said they would monitor it over the weekend before determining when cleanup can begin.

The hole has been stagnant since Friday afternoon, said Kevin Guthrie, Pasco County's assistant administrator for public safety. He confirmed that the hole, which is 250 feet wide and 50 feet deep, is the largest in three decades in the county, which has a history of sinkholes.

"Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone in this community," Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said, according to CBS affiliate WTSP-TV. "This is Mother Nature and we don't know where it's going to go."
