• Water main break causes sinkhole in Butler


    BUTLER, Pa. - A large sinkhole opened up on a street in Butler after a 12-inch water line broke Saturday morning.

    Pennsylvania American Water said 15 customers were affected by the break, which happened on North Chestnut Street.

    Residents in the area told Channel 11 News that the road was moving before the break happened.

    “When the cop was passing this morning at like three o’clock in the morning, he was witnessing the road moving up and down,” said Justin Maharg. “There are bricks from the road, the old road, all the way down the street.”

    Officials said water service was restored around 4:30 p.m.
