Water main break causes sinkhole in DeKalb



LITHONIA, Ga. - A break in a 24-inch water main caused a sinkhole to develop just outside a large DeKalb County water tank.

The broken line is a main coming out of the tank near Layton Drive.

Crews are working to remove asphalt around the break to make repairs.

The rushing water ran through a nearby subdivision, but no homes have lost water service.

A separate underground pipe also broke nearby on Parkway Drive. The street flooded and was closed Tuesday morning.
