The Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu was closed down Thursday night after a large water main break caused a sinkhole and flooding in nearby areas, local media reports said. Homes are reportedly being inspected by local officials for possible damage due to the flooding.
Authorities reportedly urged Thanksgiving travelers to expect delays on the highway as it was shut down in both directions at Trancas Canyon Road, NBC Los Angeles reported. The water reportedly gushed out nearly 100 feet into the air from one of the southbound lanes, CBS Local reported. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works has been reportedly informed about the main break.
