A sinkhole swallowed a woman's home near Tampa in Florida.

Building inspectors declared the house off limits after it began sinking last night. No one was hurt.

Neighbors say it's not the first time a sinkhole has caused trouble in their sub-division.

Some residents have had the ground beneath their homes reinforced to prevent this from happening to them.

Crews plan to return to the home to evaluate the damage on Friday.
