A 10-foot deep sinkhole opened up at the backside of a Washington Street building after Thursday’s heavy downpour. It became clear to owner John Francis and City engineer Criss Haynes the volume of water from the storm affected a broken drainpipe hidden underground tearing the dirt away to reveal a cave entrance where the water escaped. Francis said crews will add new supports for the structure and repair the waterpipe. The cave will remain anonymous.
