OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Ventura County sheriff’s deputies say traffic was safely diverted around a 20-foot-wide sinkhole at an Oxnard intersection.

The 10-foot-deep hole opened Sunday at Ventura Road and Hemlock Street. Investigators tell the Ventura County Star (https://bit.ly/OSXV8h) it was probably caused by rain.

Fill work is scheduled to continue throughout the day Monday.

Capt. Dave Wareham says there was some concern a traffic signal would fall and rupture a gas line but workers were able to stabilize it.

Traffic in all directions was being diverted.
