"You could actually stand three people up in the hole," said Bay Park resident Sylvia Gott.
Gott has watched for weeks now as the sinkhole which has swallowed the access road behind the building has grown to about 50 feet wide.
"I'm very concerned about it," said Gott. "I'm glad they brought in the generator so quickly because we've been on generator power basically the whole time."

Severe flooding hit several parts of the globe, but the worst affected was Peru where dozens of people died and hundreds of thousands have been left with no homes. With freak tidal waves from Iran to South Africa, strange 'gas' explosions in the UK and methane gas leaks in Russia, not to mention snow off the coast of Africa and lightning scoring direct strikes on cars, March was a pretty intense month for the planet and its inhabitants.

The roadway damage started along the road shoulder on Feb. 22 but continued to deteriorate. It was decided after consultations with engineers to close the road in both directions Wednesday, said John Medlock Jr., deputy director of the county public works Maintenance and Operations Department.
The damage is in the southbound lane and shoulder near mile marker 7.38. Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are advised to avoid the area and use alternative routes.
Medlock said there is no estimated time when the road will be repaired and reopened. "We want to get it reopened as soon as possible," he said.
Medlock said the Redwood Road damage is the most to any county road since 1996.

San Diego police officers were called to the 1300 block of Del Sol Lane shortly after 11 a.m., where a truck had fallen into a sinkhole, according to Sgt. Ray Battrick. But the driver was able to get his truck out of the hole and was not injured.
A fire hydrant nearby was also affected, shooting a large fountain of water into the air before city work crews responded and shut it off, Battrick said. Water was shut off in the area so crews could repair the water main.

According to local news, the road suddenly collapsed when the bus passed by and the rear wheels got trapped in the sinkhole.
