A massive sinkhole has opened between two homes in Glenside, Pennsylvania on January 25, 2017, prompting an evacuation of both homes.
The hole opened on Brook Road, in Cheltenham Township, near the North Hills Country Club, and nearly swallowed a pickup truck.
AquaAmerica spokesperson said a 15 cm (6 inches) cast-iron main broke during the incident, cutting water service to 30 to 40 homes.
There are no reports of injuries and the cause of the sinkhole is under investigation.
