Now, more than 100 parking spots are blocked off and three businesses had to close over the week-end. According to on-site geologists, the sinkhole has slowed down its growth.

According to WLFA, repair will start after sinkhole and ground stabilization. No buildings were damaged and no people injured… Just a big hole in the middle of the parking lot!
