Residents of Sunset Park are waking up to some disconcerting news this morning: A massive sinkhole at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 64th Street appeared out of nowhere and gobbled up a large portion of the street. 

Images from the scene depict a hole that’s easily big enough to have devoured a car or perhaps even two. Several images on Twitter depict at least one disconnected pipe. The gaping hole basically spans the entire intersection.

ABC 7 reports that officials from National Grid have responded to the scene because gas lines have been affected. No injuries have been reported so far.

Here are some images of the sinkhole:
