Sink hole develops following recent rains

LAWTON, Okla._Recent rains are to blame for a large sink hole that developed at a Lawton salvage yard on Southwest 3rd Street.

A business owner at Lawton Auto Parts told 7NEWS his employees discovered the sink hole early Wednesday morning. He said the hole measured about ten feet in diameter, and about nine feet deep and had water rushing through it. He said his employees often drive a forklift over the area several times a day, and were fortunate the hole developed before they came in to work.

The owner said he contacted the City of Lawton who came out to inspect it. They told him they had to rope off two others like it Wednesday.

    Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal "Obamacare" with a two-year delay for implementation to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.
