Two sinkholes caused by the heavy rains have led to closures Wednesday on roads in Los Angeles County.

A SigAlert has been issued in downtown Los Angeles on the northbound Santa Ana (101) Freeway for a sinkhole in the right lane near Spring Street. Traffic is reportedly backed up to Fourth Street.

Another sinkhole is in the 1200 block of Elden Avenue in the Pico-Union neighborhood. It is about 3 feet wide and “probably about 10 feet deep and open up on the inside,” Sgt. Richard Boyd of the Los Angeles Police Department told KTLA.

“Definitely not a situation that we’re going to let people come near or drive up to,” Boyd said.
