Possible sinkhole


A possible sinkhole has damaged four apartments and one home in North Catasauqua, Northampton County.

Emergency crews were called to the 1000 block of 2nd Street around 10:45 a.m. Saturday when what appears to be a sinkhole caused a foundation to partially collapse.

A building with four apartments and a single-family home were evacuated, according to officials. The Red Cross is assisting three of the people who were displaced.


Officials believe both buildings may be salvageable, and that the occupants may be able to return.

There were no injuries.
