Florida authorities this morning asked multiple families to evacuate their homes after a sinkhole swallowed up an entire house and almost 60 percent of another one in their neighborhood, police said.

"The sinkhole is still active", it said on Facebook.

Tobin says surrounding homes are being evacuated and that emergency management officials are heading to the scene.

Firefighters arrived at the residence to discover a hole about the size of a swimming pool. Firefighters rescued two dogs from inside the home.

At least 10 homes have been evacuated from the area, according to the station.

The sinkhole was first reported as a depression around 7:56 a.m. on Friday morning, noted ABC News.

Guthrie said that the question of safety was under control and, although it had been a frightening experience for residents, it was now a question of trying to conserve property.

Initially, authorities called the hole a "depression" but have since categorized it as a sinkhole - an important distinction for insurance purposes.

Power has been shut off to about 100 homes as a precaution.
