- A hole opened up on a St. Petersburg road that may look small, but could “swallow a car,” police said.

St. Petersburg police reported a depression opened up in the middle of 34th Street and 4th Avenue South. It’s measured to be 10 feet wide and 10 feet deep, they said. The opening doesn’t appear to be as large from the surface.
