Heavy rainfall causes massive sinkhole in Perth Amboy
A large sinkhole developed in Perth Amboy this week after heavy rainfall.
The 20-feet hole emerged Wednesday and forced officials to close one block of Gordon Street near the Perth Amboy waterfront. Officials say that the rain, coupled with an aging brick sewer main below the street caused the ground to collapse below the asphalt.
No one was hurt and no cars were damaged by the hole.
Perth Amboy officials say that it will take several more days to fully complete repairs. The hole will need to be filled in and then the street will need to be repaved.
Repairs may be completed by Tuesday.
