NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - A two-family home in Norwood was evacuated Thursday morning due to a large sinkhole in the basement.
Police say a 25-foot wide hole has opened in the building, located in the 1900 block of Maple Avenue. It's unclear how deep it is.
A couple living on the first floor has been displaced. A resident who lived on the second floor recently moved out.
MSD Water Collection Superintendent Mike Pittinger says the entire property will have to excavated to repair the problem.
"The best alternative was to actually purchase the house and tear it down and complete the repair unobstructed from the building," Pittinger explained.
