Official: No Signs That Fla. Sinkhole Is Expanding

CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) - An official at the Florida resort where a villa was partially swallowed into the ground says it doesn't appear the sinkhole on the site is growing.
    
Summer Bay Resort President Paul Caldwell told reporters during a news conference Tuesday that engineers examined the 100-foot sinkhole at Clermont resort and determined there's no reason to believe it will grow.
    
Caldwell says the resort remains open, but with three buildings still unoccupied. The resort is taking claims from guests staying in the collapsed building. Guests from two adjacent buildings that also were evacuated are being allowed in with escorts to retrieve possessions.
    
On Monday, about a third of one 24-unit villa collapsed. Affected guests were evacuated, and no injuries were reported. The three-story villa was reported as a total loss.
