Harbor, OR –  A monster sinkhole shut down Highway 101 on the south Oregon coast Thursday.    Just look at the size of this thing!

It’s got to be at least 50 feet deep, and it’s swallowed up the entire road, along with part of a parking lot.   It’s in Harbor, Oregon, about 100 miles north of Eureka, California.

The Oregon DOT says drivers will have to take a detour – through at least the first week of February.    They haven’t said yet, what caused it.
