Another 14 people were injured, most of them are children.

Cindy Williams, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol said, “The condition of several of the injured was “very, very serious”.

Overnight sprinkler are usually used during freezing nights in Florida to protect the plants, fruits and trees from the extreme weather.

And a part of the results is stunning icicles like shinning, beautiful decorations hanging from the plants and trees.

Aren’t they beautiful?

Florida Man Swallowed By Sinkhole Feared Dead

A man feared dead after he was swallowed by a sinkhole in his suburban Tampa home in Seffner, Florida.

(Please click here for the photos)

Reuters reported that Jeff Bush, 37, was in his bedroom Thursday night when the sinkhole suddenly swallowed him and the entire bedroom into the ground.

The sinkhole was estimated 20 feet across and 20 feet deep.

It caused the home’s concrete floor to cave in around 11 p.m. Thursday.

Fortunately five other people in the house were unharmed.

Bush’s brother Jeremy Bush jumped into the hole and tried to dig to find his brother but he could not find him.

He was rescued by Douglas Duvall of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office who pulled him out from the sinkhole.

The sinkhole is slowly growing and it was feared that the entire house could eventually falls into the unstable ground.

Engineers said the house may have to be demolished, even though from the outside the house seems to be alright.

They took soil samples and ran various tests and found that the entire lot was dangerous.

Reuters reported that,”Authorities had not detected any signs of life after lowering listening devices and cameras into the hole and rescue efforts were suspended after the site was deemed too unsafe for emergency personnel to enter”.

Two adjacent houses were evacuated and officials were considering further evacuations.

“This is not your typical sinkhole,” said Hillsborough County administrator Mike Merrill.

Florida is highly prone to sinkholes because there are caverns below ground of limestone, a porous rock that easily dissolves in water.

This is a disaster.

But when it happens away from buildings and roads, it could turn out to be nice and beautiful places after a long time; please click here for ‘Photos: Amazing Sinkholes Around The World’.

Updated news – Photos: Isaac Flooded New Orleans, Louisiana and Mississippi (August 30, 2012)

(Update: Hurricane Isaac In N. Orleans On Katrina’s 7th Anniversary – Photos)

Hurricane Isaac crashed ashore in southeast Louisiana on Tuesday, bringing high winds and heavy rain.

Nearly 70,000 people in Louisiana were without electricity.

On Tuesday, some parts of Louisiana’s low-lying Plaquemines Parish were already flooded.

The effects of the large, slow moving storm have already been felt along the coast lines of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Large storm surge caused flood in Louisiana and winds gusted to 99.7793 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in New Orleans.

On Tuesday morning, engineers closed the new floodgate at Lake Borgne, east of New Orleans, for the first time.

It is largest storm-surge barrier in the world.

Hurricane Isaac is predicted to hit New Orleans almost exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005 killing more than 1,800 people and causing billions of dollars of damage.

People were urged to leave the low-lying areas in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana because the hurricane could flood towns and cities in, with a storm surge of up to 12 feet high!

Before turning into a hurricane, Tropical Storm Issac had already killed at least 23 people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

It could become the first hurricane to hit the Gulf Coast since 2008. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

Isaac is forecast to become a hurricane by either late Monday or Tuesday and then strengthen to a Category 2 Hurricane.

A hurricane warning was issued for the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle, including New Orleans.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an advisory that it might reach New Orleans and the the Gulf Coast on or near the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

I was in Chicago when Hurricane Katrina lashed New Orleans on August 29, 2005 but I cannot really remember the details because I was only 2 years old at that time.

Hurricane Katrina killed more than 1,800 people and causing billions of dollars of damage to the Gulf Coast.
