JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- You may be seeing a lot of road cave-ins lately. According to JEA, they have reports of more than 40 cave-ins since Tropical Storm Debby.
They say that's a record number and it's because of all the rain.
Carol Mayberry has lived in her Southside home since 1985. She says she has seen many road cave-ins on her block over the years.
Mayberry, a great grandmother, has had to lug a heavy barricade and place it in the road, she said, many times.
"It's been like this now for more than a month," she said, "They don't have any lights on them, so sometimes people knock them over."
Her neighbor Curtis Briddell said, "If you're going to fix it, fix it right. That's what I was always taught."
JEA says they got the call for this problem last week and started investigating right away.
JEA Spokeswoman Gerri Boyce said it's a problem with the manhole liners that could be making the ground sink.
Boyce added that sewer pipes burst on that road in 2002, and that is why there are other patches. First for you, if you have a sinking road problem, call JEA at 665-6000.
