METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Authorities have barricaded a sinkhole that was discovered on a Louisiana street.

Nola.com/The Times-Picayune reports the Jefferson Parish Streets Department was notified about the 12-foot by 12-foot hole Wednesday around 9 a.m. There were no injuries and no additional damage reported.

Jefferson Parish President Mike Yenni says the sinkhole was caused by a collapsed drain line that will be replaced next week.
