A three-metre-deep sinkhole opened up on this property on Gale Ave. North, in West Porpoise Bay on Feb. 26. The family has left the house, and Sechelt district closed the street out of concern that the roadway may have been undermined. The sinkhole was apparently caused by underground water, but the source of the water was not clear. The district has hired geotechnical engineers to investigate. The family requests people not go to the site, as the hole is on private property and nothing can be seen from the road. Rik Jespersen photo
