Cement is being poured into a large sinkhole which has opened up at a home in the Village of Glenbrook.
The large, deep sinkhole opened up Friday at the home Galesburg Court. It is located about 30 feet from the front door of the residence.
Neighbors said several trucks dumped loads of cement into the hole on Saturday. The concrete has solidified about six feet below ground level. Utility lines have been exposed and appear to be damaged. The house does not appear to have any damage.
Last September, in the wake of Hurricane Irma a sinkhole opened up at the same home. The sinkhole was right at the front door.
