Family forced to relocate due to sinkhole

The view of the Riverside Drive sinkhole from Amanda Angelo's apartment.

Amanda Angelo wasn't sure where she was staying Monday night. At 2:30 p.m. Monday, she was packing up her house, her kids, her life and preparing to spend at least two weeks away.

As she got her things together, she could look outside and see the massive sinkhole on Riverside Drive forcing her family and at least seven others away.

"We have nowhere to go, no nothing. It's a lot," Angelo said. "I don't even know what to take. We just went grocery shopping this morning."

She and her boyfriend and her four children between the ages of 5 and 11 stayed in the apartment in the cold Sunday night.

Amanda Angelo, right, and her family will have to relocate from their Riverside Drive apartment after a water main break created a sinkhole.

Angelo, 33, said they were initially told it would be safe to stay, so they bought heaters and prepared to tough it out with no water or gas, but around 2 p.m. Monday, her landlord and the city of Cincinnati said it was no longer safe.

Her landlord had just come around to collect some of this month's rent Monday morning, she said. He told her they might get a portion of it back.
