• Sinkhole opens up near businesses in Hickory


    HICKORY, N.C. - A sinkhole has opened up in a parking lot behind some businesses along Sixth Avenue Southwest in Hickory

    One worker said he felt his car starting to go down into it.

    The city filled it with dirt last year, but the hole reopened and is growing in size.  It is about 15 feet across and about 8 feet deep.

    Resident nearby told Channel 9 he is concerned about children in the area.
