The initial sinkhole happened in December in the parking lot of the Fireside Diner in Harbor, Oregon, after torrential rain.

On Thursday, the ground became unstable after storms battered the local area. A section of Shopping Center Avenue - parallel to Highway 101 - began to slip away, according to Jared Castle, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Police cordoned off the area and set up a detour for drivers.
