Flooding Causes 20-Foot Sink Hole To Open In The San Francisco Bay Area


By Paul Johnson

Lafayette, California (CNN) - Flood waters caused some major damage in the San Francisco Bay Area. In Lafayette, northeast of Oakland, a 20-foot sink hole opened under Mountain View Drive.
The flood waters undercut a section of the road, washing it away.
You can clearly see how bad the damage is.
The collapsing asphalt road snapped off a water service line and a sewage line.
Luckily, the gas line wasn't damaged and a sanitation crew was able to keep any raw sewage from running into the nearby creek.
Residents have been told not to expect the road to be completely repaired for several weeks.
