Amid ongoing rain, a sinkhole opened up on a roadway in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Redondo Beach, police said Thursday.

Authorities were notified on Wednesday evening about the sinkhole near Ford Avenue and Dixon Street, said Lt. Fabian Salcido of Redondo Beach Police Department.

He described the sinkhole as about 6 feet wide and 5 feet deep, but video from the scene showed a much larger opening.

Crews were working to shore up the street, the video showed. The sinkhole was repaired about 4 p.m. and the area was reopened to traffic.
