ROBBINSDALE, Minnesota (WXOW) -The weekend's storms caused headaches in the Twin Cities. Robbinsdale's Mayor Regan Murphy says a sinkhole formed at 42nd Avenue North and Bottineau Boulevard as a result of those storms.
The hole is estimated to be 15- to 20 feet deep and at least 50 feet wide, said Murphy. The sinkhole was caused by a water main break, which is believed to have happened during Friday night's storms.
The sinkhole has caused some road closures. It's unclear when the road will be completely re-opened. Murphy estimates that the road could be closed for about two weeks. There are no injuries reported.
