Posted: Updated:

A sinkhole in Tampa, Florida, has swallowed a car and forced eleven families to evacuate from a condominium complex.

A sinkhole is a natural depression or hole in Earth's surface, frequently caused by erosion.

Just last month, a massive sinkhole engulfed a building in Guatemala. Another sinkhole in China swallowed a playground.

The Tampa sinkhole is approximately 20 feet wide and several feet deep and could keep growing, according to emergency response officials.
