    4-Lane Road Buckles, Sinks in San Diego

    SAN DIEGO (AP) - A four-lane road buckled Wednesday and sank slowly in a hilly upscale neighborhood, threatening several homes. No injuries were reported.

    Power line fell and at least four homes were evacuated, said Maurice Luque, a spokesman for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Gas and power supplies were shut off.
    The collapse shortly before 9 a.m. left a ravine of crumpled pavement. Orange traffic cones and sections of big concrete pipes sat in the fissure slashing across the wide boulevard.
    One home began to collapse, and at least seven other houses were in danger of being damaged, according to Gary Hassen, a police spokesman. There were other homes at the bottom of the hill.
    The sinkhole in the La Jolla neighborhood of million-dollar homes cut in a cone shape and was about 50 yards long. About two hours about two hours after the collapse the situation appeared stable, City Attorney Michael Aguirre said.

    I grew up around sinkholes, not good when one starts where there was not one before.
