The heavy rain not only caused high water on some area roads, it also caused a sink hole on the side of U.S. 224 in New Haven Township in southern Huron County.

The road is closed between State Routes 598 and 99, and State Highway Patrol Troopers are standing guard to make sure motorists who ignore the road closed and detour signs don't drive past it, out of concern the entire road could cave in.

The 30 foot wide and 30 foot deep sink hole is next to railroad tracks, which are also closed because the weight of a train could cause it to expand.

Trooper Bryan Dail of the Norwalk post says the hole was discovered by a motorist Thursday morning.

He says sink holes have formed in this area in the past.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is getting started on repairing the hole, but it could take up to eight days, so motorists are urged to follow the detour.  

Westbound motorists should take State Route 598 north to State Route 103 west to State Route 99 south to U.S. 224.
