People living along South 14th Street in Harrisburg got an unwelcome wake up call Thursday morning. A spokesperson with Capitol Region Water says a water main break caused a sinkhole to open around 6:30 a.m. Shortly after another sinkhole opened across the street. A boil water advisory was in affect on the street and UGI had to shut off the gas. Those who live on the street concerned about what the sinkholes will do to their property values.

“  I`m thinking about the economy. Those of us looking to sell and leave the neighborhood soon what`s that going to do to the property value? I can`t say look at my beautiful home excuse the hole out front,” says Nikole Stewart

Officials with Capitol Region Water don’t have a timeline yet on when these sinkholes will be repaired.
