HUDSON, Fla. -- A Pasco County community remains on edge Tuesday as four additional holes have opened up in the area, bringing the total up to 20.

According to county officials, multiple depressions were monitored in the Lakeside Woodlands neighborhood in Hudson last week. After multiple followup site visits, officials saw that the depressions in the area have increased in size since the initial evaluation.

As of Tuesday morning, the largest hole was measured as 25 feet across and eight feet deep.

Earlier in the week, Pasco County officials said a geologist will have to determine the cause of the depressions, so it is unknown if last week's heavy rain played a role in the holes being formed.
