A sinkhole opened up beneath a major road in downtown Fukuoka on Tuesday morning, disrupting traffic, power transmission and banking systems as authorities scrambled to evacuate surrounding areas at risk of more cave-ins.

The Fukuoka police and City Hall said they had not received any reports of injuries but blocked off nearby areas as a safety precaution.

The road apparently caved in at around 5:15 a.m. at an intersection near JR Hakata Station, according to Fukuoka City Hall.
