Sinkhole in Ottawa Ontario Canada appears

Postby CielOnTap on Wed Jun 08, 2016 12:27 pm

The massive sinkhole is on a busy downtown Ottawa street. The event has led to the evacuation of nearby buildings.
The sinkhole appeared at about 10:30 a.m. ET Wednesday near the corner of Rideau Street and Sussex Drive at a light rail construction site. It's about two blocks east of the Château Laurier hotel.

Soon after forming, the sinkhole spread across the entirety of Rideau Street, stretching from the south sidewalk to the north sidewalk.

A large volume of water could be seen gushing inside the sinkhole due to a watermain break, but the water was soon shut off.

Thanks to CBC News for tweeting the story online.
