(KTXL) — The Auburn Police Department is asking people to avoid the area of Auburn-Folsom Road and College Way on Thursday after a water main break caused the road to collapse.

An eight-inch Placer County Water Agency water main ruptured underneath the roadway around 5 a.m. and created a six-feet deep hole.

Eight homes are currently without water and there is no estimated time when water will be restored or when the road will be reopened.
