    While water may be restored in a Hillcrest neighborhood after a weekend sinkhole, residents in one cul-de-sac are still blocked from leaving their homes.

    Residents near Cypress Avenue and Georgia Street heard the trouble brewing around 6:30 a.m. Sunday.  They heard a loud noise after a six-inch concrete water main broke, sending thousands of gallons of water rushing onto the street corner.

    The water was gushing everywhere.
