Worry deepens as Palmyra sinkhole continues to grow

Posted: Updated:
PALMYRA, Pa. (WHTM) - A huge sinkhole in Palmyra keeps getting bigger.

Heavy rains washed away even more soil last week, widening the sinkhole on East Cherry Street.  A home now teeters on the edge of that hole.

Residents are worried the sinkhole will keep growing and swallow the entire block.

"If it spreads across here, which is definitely a possibility, that would be bad news for us," said resident Jeremy Long. "I know that everybody on our block is concerned about it.  Our neighbors have talked about it, too."

The borough manager said he recently received the results of a geological study.  Officials said they will use that information to come up with a solution.
