OXFORD, N.S. — A small Nova Scotia town is urging public caution as officials scramble to assess a large, fast-expanding sinkhole that has sucked up trees and picnic tables.
An Oxford, N.S., park has been roped off while geologists and emergency management officials assess the stability of the surrounding area, which includes a community centre, gas station and a Tim Hortons.
Playground equipment at Oxford and Area Lions Parkland was dismantled and moved to storage over the weekend.
Linda Cloney, public relations officer for the town, said the sinkhole has become a tourist attraction as people come for a glimpse, with a few minor “fender benders” over the last few days.
Security is on site around the clock to keep people out of the park while assessment work is ongoing.
Emergency management is working on a video with footage from the site to indicate the importance of safety precautions, and a release with updated information is expected later today.
