Authorities responded to a sinking road that appeared Thursday morning in San Diego's North County.

The incident was reported off Via De La Valle near El Camino Real. Aerial footage from SkyRanger 7 showed crews blocking off the affected roadway. No one was hurt.

City of San Diego spokesman Arian Collins told NBC 7 the dip in the roadway was caused by a minor leak on a water main.

Collins said Thursday afternoon that city public utility crews were working on repairs expected to be completed sometime Friday.
