More homes in DeBary have been evacuated after a 20-by-50-foot sinkhole opened on Don Smith Boulevard about 7:30 tonight. Families from about 20 homes on Sotheby Way in DeBary Golf and Country Club are being directed to a Red Cross shelter at St. Ann's Catholic Church.

The St. Johns River, already at flood stage all along Volusia County, continued to rise Monday, prompting officials to warn residents in low-lying areas to sandbag their homes and leave if they feel threatened by rising water.
