(May 6) Who could forget the pictures, a memorable part of the storm of 2013. A broken sewer line created a giant sinkhole in the street and swallowed three cars. Two-and-a-half weeks later, the hole is bigger than ever, the sewer smell worse than ever, and the residents are being told it will take at least a couple more weeks. (Source)

(May 6) As third sinkhole opens, Palmer Township resident asks “could we collapse into a hole?” Sinkholes are common in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, where underground water runs through soft limestone that’s prone to give way. But Palmer and Bethlehem township sinkholes are larger than most. Crews had to repair two sizable sinkholes on Northwood Avenue in April.  A 16-inch main at that site led to the formation of another hole a few feet away. On March 10, a sinkhole opened behind 1502 Second St. in Bethlehem Township. That sinkhole, which forced a family to leave its home, was blamed on an aging, leaky sewer main. A sinkhole formed in Allentown in late April. (Source)
