LAND O' LAKES, Fla. -

 Residents are being evacuated in a Florida neighborhood due to a massive sinkhole that's already swallowed two houses. 

CBS affiliate WTSP-TV reports a depression the size of a small pool first formed at around 8:30 a.m. on Friday in Land O' Lakes, and quickly grew. Authorities say one home on Ocean Pines Drive was completely destroyed and another is 50 to 60 percent damaged. No one was home at the time.

Rescue crews went into the destroyed house and saved two dogs, officials said. 

Authorities urged neighbors to collect their belongings to prepare for the evacuations, as the size of the hole is increasing. 

At this time, about 100 homes are without power. It remains unclear when electricity will be restored in the area.
