Large Sinkhole on River Road

WILMINGTON -- Heavy rains from Tropical Storm Ernesto created a sinkhole on River Road.

The sinkhole formed Friday afternoon. It's 11 feet in diameter and three feet deep.

Repair crews say that portion of the road was already weak, but Ernesto was the straw that broke the camel's back.

A temporary fix was laid Friday evening. Crews will resume work on the sinkhole Tuesday, following the holiday weekend.
