A section of road a quarter mile south of Highway 105 on Post Road is closed due to a partial street collapse caused by the recent storms. Due to a dam with an insufficient water run-off pipe, a large amount of water washed over the road creating a hole that is estimated to be 20 feet deep and 20 to 30 feet long.
Logan County District 2 Commissioner Michael Pearson said that part of the county received around four inches of rain during the storm, most of it within one hour.
"Water came over a dam and washed into the road. It was just too much water too fast and too small of a tin horn," Pearson said.
The road has been closed off to prevent accidents and those in the area are cautioned to stay clear of that area for the time being. Pearson said they are currently working on repairing the damaged road.
"For now, we are going to try to cover it up so we can open the road. We will try to fix the road soon but, with all the rain and storms it may take some time before construction can start. I would say it will probably be closed four at least two days," Pearson said.
