Dunedin sinkhole stirs memories for Seffner residents

Posted: Updated:
SEFFNER (FOX 13) -

A family in Seffner is having a terrible flashback because of sinkholes now opening up in a Dunedin neighborhood.

Back in February in Seffner, a sinkhole opened and swallowed a home killing a man who was sleeping inside.

The incident is hard to move past.

"It's got people spooked. They said this area is prime for sinkholes," Jeff Kelley, who lives nearby told FOX 13. "There is no telling. A gentleman was laying in his bed and it ate him up. They never found his body."

Kelley isn't the only person haunted by the event. Jason Stephens was in the house when it happened.

He lives in the same neighborhood just around the corner from where the house used to stand. He says now he takes note of anything suspicious.

"Maybe there is a crack here, but maybe tomorrow it will open up," he said.

The damage in the neighborhood is not only emotional. Rents have gone down. Some residents expect home values to decrease as well.
