‘Big’ sinkhole has formed on S. 96th Street and 8th Ave S. in South Park
Reports that a ‘big’ sinkhole has formed on S. 96th Street near 8th Ave S. (map below) in unincorporated King County near the South Park neighborhood are coming in Friday morning (Sept. 6).
No word yet on the cause, but our best guess is that it has to do with the recent rains.
[NOTE: While technically this is NOT within the Burien city limits, it appears that Google Maps identifies this intersection as being in Burien. We have corrected this story to reflect that information.]
