AverageAmericanGuy: A street named Detroit in Toledo.Might as well just raze that whole neighborhood. Nothing good can come from it.
bdub77: Police and fire crews are still working to determine exactly what caused the sinkhole to open upIs 'Because it's Detroit' a cause?

LordOfThePings: "It could have happened to anybody. I could have been driving right there and been sucked right down in that hole."Not me, I would have just levitated.
Gyrfalcon: ....right down into the hole.
ski9600: thismomentinblackhistory: I drove by this today. It was quite the scene. Link to a video.It's funny because I used to process the bill from the water utility for my office. There was now way we were using that amount of water in my building, so I talked to the plumbers about it. They said that they had to leave to downstairs toilet running so it wouldn't freeze and couldn't fix the problem. Just keep paying the bill. I think there's a leak in the pipe and likely a big sinkhole in our future. However they say that all the water is coming from the leaking toilet. I guess that the size of my pipe was too small to fix, however when the snow-making pipes fail IT'S A REALLY BIG DEAL!/so we just keep paying for clear water flowing into the creek, quarterly, forever.//$500/mo adds up to serious money after a while///probably been that way for over 10 years////I've read that at least 1/3 of a creek/river runs underneath the ground/streambed. It probably gets pretty wide, like wider than the creek/river//sorry for 5 slashies, but between the leak and the creek/river is the plumbers shop which is likely to sink
LordOfThePings: Gyrfalcon: ....right down into the hole.That's the joke.
megarian: OgreMagi: Megarian, are you ok?Wrong Detroit!/we've been a sinkhole for years
