Sinkhole opens on N. Catasauqua street

NORTH CATASAUQUA, Pa. - A Northampton County neighborhood is weighing its options after an unexpected hole opened up Wednesday morning.

A large sinkhole opened up in the 1100 block of North Second Street in North Catasauqua.

While crews work on the sinkhole, North Second Street is closed between Arch and Buttonwood streets.

A 69 News crew at the scene said one family in the twin home in front of the sinkhole has been evacuated.

One homeowner lost a car to the sinkhole.

Fire officials said it's not clear what caused the sinkhole, but it does not appear that there was a water main break.
