10-foot-deep sinkhole opens up in Bay Ridge street
A massive sinkhole opened up in the middle of the street in Bay Ridge, forcing some people to spend hours without water.
Con Edison is working to repair the hole, which currently takes over half of the street on 6th Avenue.
"It was 7 a.m. when I first went to get the car. The cops were here, they had this whole area shut down," said nearby resident Sagr Nesan.
The FDNY says they first received a call for the sinkhole at 6 a.m. The Department of Environmental Protection says the sinkhole was caused by a break in the sewer.
No one was injured in the incident and DEP authorities say people in the area got their water back on by 8 p.m.
The DEP added another statement Wednesday saying, "Repair of the sewer line has been completed. All customers have water service. Roadway repair will continue."
