HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

A report of a sinkhole in a Henderson neighborhood was actually ripples in the roadway caused by a water main break, the city said Wednesday.

Henderson police said the call of a sinkhole was reported at Palo Verde Drive and Sausalito Drive, near Boulder Highway. 

However, Kathleen Richards, of Henderson Public Works, said water workers identified the incident as a water main break and resultant ripples in the roadway. There was no sinkhole in the area, Richards added.

A public works crew is making repairs and investigating the break. The city estimated water to be off for several hours.

Motorists were urged to avoid the area.
