FABENS, Texas (KFOX14) — Heavy rains in Fabens caused a sinkhole on 4th and Main streets on Wednesday morning.
Barricades have been set up from Main Street to past the railroad tracks on 4th Street.
People in Fabens said it was the most rain the area had gotten in a while.
"I mean, the intensity and the wind was just, it was very hard, nonstop. It usually doesn't rain this hard from what I can remember," said Edward Garza.
The Fabens Water District told KFOX14 the sinkhole opened up after two or three hours of heavy rain.
They have already notified TxDOT and Union Pacific of the damage since the sinkhole is right next to Main Street/Highway 20 and the railroad tracks.
Fabens resident Edward Garza told KFOX14 Fabens doesn't typically get so much damage from storms, so the sinkhole was surprising but not concerning.
"I'm not really too worried about it. We usually have pretty good drainage here where the water won't last too long," he said.
The Fabens Water District said they plan on having it fixed ideally in two or three days based on the weather, but if it keeps raining this week it will take longer.
