ORIENTAL, N.C. (WNCT) – A sinkhole developed overnight on Church Street near Midyette Street in Oriental.
Road crews blocked off the hole Wednesday morning with cones to prevent drivers from passing over it. The Bay River Metro Sewer District said it’s about three feet wide and two feet deep.
The sewer company isn’t sure what caused the sinkhole, but guess it has something to do with dirt getting into one of the main sewer lines.
They will know more once they dig up the pipes Thursday morning.
