HARRISBURG, PA.(WPMT) The 300 block of N. 15th Street near Swatara Street  in Harrisburg is closed to traffic due to a sinkhole.  Emergency crews were called to the scene at about 4 pm.

The sinkhole was apparently caused by a broken water main.  Capital Regional Water Company crews had the main repaired by 8 pm.  Because the line needed to be flushed 28 customers along the street were advised to boil their water before use.
