Road in Luzerne County Closed Due to Possible Mine Subsidence

WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A road in Luzerne County is closed after caving in early Sunday morning.

Police say crews filled in a hole along North Walnut Street last week in Wilkes-Barre Township.

The road eventually caved in just after midnight on Sunday.

Police say mine experts are investigating what they believe may be a mine subsidence.

Experts say it will take a few days before they know for sure what caused the hole.

A few homes nearby did have water temporarily shut off due to the road caving in Luzerne County.
