Heavy Downpours and Flooding Cause Sink Holes

OCTOBER 10, 2005 -- Streets in the area are closed because chunks of them are missing.

A sink hole has opened on 14th Street between Ann and Orange Streets.

The city says a storm water pipe is located under that street and the heavy rain last week caused the pavement to cave in.

That street remains closed until workers can find a way to fix the problem.

Another trouble spot is near the intersection of 11th and Hanover Streets, where a section of pavement is sinking.
