That now means 20 depressions have opened between Sylvan Drive and Willow Brook Court in the last few days.
Pasco County Emergency Management said the depressions are "active and showing slight signs of growth" but added there are no safety concerns at this time, and no structures are in danger.
The holes are on private property, the office said.
Barbara Luster is one of the residents dealing with the issue. She discovered a small depression behind a pool.
"I thought, 'Wow this is amazing. It's like something you see in the movies.'"
The HOA has filled the holes on the property it maintains, but the HOA president says any holes on resident property is the responsibility of the homeowner.
Residents of the area are trying to remain calm but admit the situation is unsettling.
"It's a little nerveracking," said Patricia Pfaff. "You don't know if you want to get everything together and pack it up.
"Just keep saying our prayers that we'll be OK," she said.
A state geologist has met with the emergency management office to collection information.
