SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - People on County Road 2296 are still dealing with a massive sinkhole.
Meranda Michael has lived on County Road 2296 for a year. She is worried about how she and her neighbors will get out if the sinkhole takes over the road.
The road is the only way out for residents. Residents are also worried about the quality of their water.
"It's almost black-looking. It has stained the sinks, the toilet, the bathtub. Everything has this black ring around it," Michael said.
Lee County Road Manager Tim Allred said workers are waiting for the rain to stop. Once that happens, workers will fix the leaking pipe that caused the sinkhole.
They will also pack dirt into the hole and put down new asphalt.
