DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Demolition is underway on two homes damaged by a sinkhole that opened under a Florida neighborhood.

The sinkhole was discovered early Thursday at a home owned by Michael Dupre and quickly spread to a neighboring home in Dunedin just north of Clearwater. Residents from five other homes were evacuated as the massive sinkhole spread throughout the day.

Officials say crews worked through the night to stabilize the hole, which eventually measured to about 90 feet in diameter. On Friday morning, more crews began the demolition process.

On Feb. 28, Jeffrey Bush died when a sinkhole opened under his bedroom in Seffner, near Tampa.

Sinkholes are common in Florida.
