A sinkhole opened up in a midtown Tulsa neighborhood. Traffic is being diverted from 18th Street, just east of Peoria.

Michelle Allen of the City of Tulsa said a storm sewer failed from the heavy rain last week.

"The area is barricaded, and nobody was hurt," she said. "Storm water crews will be working on the repairs."

Firefighters went door to door to warn residents that a sinkhole had swallowed part of the street. Neighbors say police told them their homes are in no danger.

No word yet on how soon the sinkhole can be repaired. Drivers are encouraged to find another route.
