Cave collapse caused 20-foot-deep sinkhole in central Texas

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Residents in a Williamson County neighborhood woke up Thursday morning to find a 20-foot-deep sinkhole outside.

Ten homes in the area the Woods of Brushy Creek subdivision are without water due to a broken water line in the 8400 block of Cambria Drive, which is north of State Highway 45, according to the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office. Brushy Creek MUD says the roof of a cave collapsed at the intersection of Cambria Drive and Ephraim Road. The collapse broke the water line, which is currently leaving nearly a dozen customers without water.

The MUD is working to restore water and the county is working to assess the damage. Traffic was diverted around it and those living in the area were notified.

A picture from the scene shows a section of sidewalk between the road and grass that has collapsed.
