If there is a reported sink hole in the sub division, does that mean the area in general is sink hole prone? How far from sink hole is considered safe? 20 houses down from our house has sink hole, does that mean our house is at risk?

Florida is like swiss cheese. We have sink holes everywhere. There is a house several blocks away that had 3 large sink holes. It is the only one that I know of on our block/subdivision.

It is worse in Pasco County. I heard there's a town in Pasco county that the insurance company won't even write policies that have sink hole coverage.
