WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - City crews are on the scene in east Wichita after a sink hole opened up in the street Wednesday morning. 

Video shows the hole is in the westbound lanes of Douglas in front of the Crown Uptown Theatre at 3207 East Douglas, just east of Hillside. Traffic is being diverted in the area. 

A City of Wichita spokesperson said crews are working to repair the water leak and hole, but she did not have an estimated time of completion. The spokesperson did share a map of the area affected by the water outage.
