Yukon road buckles beneath pressure of sweltering heat

Local

YUKON, Okla. (KFOR) – The sweltering heat is proving too much for roads in local areas.

Reports are coming in of several roads buckling as temperatures soar.

The above video shows a road off Highway 66, near Sara Road in Yukon. A large crack splitting the road is clearly visible.

Officials say heat causes concrete to expand, but it will buckle if it runs out of room to grow.
