LAND O’LAKES, Fla. — The Florida sink­hole that swal­lowed two homes last week isn’t get­ting any deeper, but it’s get­ting wider, of­fi­cials said Wed­nes­day.

Be­cause of the growth, res­i­dents of two ad­di­tional homes in the neigh­bor­hood north of Tampa have been warned they may need to evac­u­ate. They were told to gather their pos­ses­sions in prepa­ra­tion of leav­ing, said Kevin Guthrie, Pasco County’s as­sis­tant ad­min­is­tra­tor for pub­lic safety.

Five homes near the sink­hole al­ready had been evac­u­ated.
