Some residents in Manchester, New Hampshire, were evacuated after a water main break caused several flooding and created large sinkholes in the street Thursday evening.
Manchester Police say flooding has washed away a portion of Goffe Street after a water main broke on the Manchester/Bedford city line.
At least 21 residents have been evacuated from several buildings in the area. They've since been allowed back into their homes.
"Last night they had this whole street blocked off. It was like a river going down the road," said one resident.
Several roads were closed. All of them have been opened back up for travel with the exception of Goffe Street. Crews are working to prevent future issues with affected pipes. A giant sinkhole remains open in the roadway. City officials say the cost of the damage could be between $50,000-$100,000 and hope to reopen Goffe Street in a few days.
It's unknown how many buildings were flooded as a result of the water main break.
Power has been restored to the entire area after it was shut off overnight.
