COCOA, Fla. - Two washouts were reported on Brevard County roads on Sunday as residents hunkered down for Hurricane Irma.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is warning drivers to avoid Indian River Drive and Sunset Terrace in Cocoa.
Officials said it was caused by a water main break.
Deputies closed the intersection to drivers.
Pictures showed a large chunk of the road collapsed.
Drivers will need to use Highview Drive from the south or Forest Hill Drive from north to get to that area.
The city of Melbourne posted on it's Facebook page that a culvert and a section of the roadway has collapsed at the Gateway Drive entrance to Melbourne Square Mall at Hibiscus Boulevard.
