The hole in the roadway appeared to be about 15 feet deep and 12 feet by 12 feet wide, according to a newspaper photographer who was on the scene.

The city of Redlands urged people to “avoid the area” of westbound Redlands Boulevard at California Street (map) in a tweet posted just before 3 p.m.

The sinkhole was on Redlands Boulevard, according to the city. The area is near the border with Loma Linda, just south of the 10 Freeway.

The sinkhole opened up a day after multiple nearby San Bernardino County mountain areas saw flash flooding and mudslides amid torrential rains and a thunderstorm.
