PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. - A picture is worth a thousand words, but it's hard to imagine a worse sight to see in your yard these days than a sinkhole.
That's what some homeowners in Warren County, N.J., may be thinking.
Officials with Aqua America said a 10 inch cast iron water main burst in the 300 block of Heckman Street in Phillipsburg, possibly causing the sinkhole, which was discovered around 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The main is shut down and Heckman Street, between Lincoln and Prospect streets, is closed while crews work to repair the main.
About 50 homes on Heckman and Lincoln streets are without water, officials said.
Closing arguments are expected in the Medicare fraud trial of a prominent Florida eye doctor who authorities say bribed a U.S. senator.Read More »
