County and state officials have issued a warning about possible sinkholes developing above an abandoned limestone mine in eastern Ohio and are asking the public to avoid the area.
County EMA Director Bo Keck says the state has investigated the area and found it to be unsafe. Keck says there was a sinkhole in March and more are possible.
Keck says four-wheelers and hunters are being told to stay off the property and two land owners in the area were informed.
State and local officials say they will continue to investigate and develop a safety plan.
