CHICKASHA, Okla. — Two sinkholes opened up in Chickasha Tuesday, nearly swallowing two vehicles.

The intersection at 7th and Chickasha is closed and awaiting repairs after recent floods undermined the pavement and caused “soft spots” where vehicles caved into the holes.

City officials say they are working on a solution to what may be a recurring issue in the area if more flooding occurs.
