VIDEO: All the Rain Has Caused a Street to Buckle in Chicago

All this rain we've been having caused a street to buckle in Chicago and it was caught on video. Here's some more from Patch:

Monday was the wettest day since September in Chicago, according to the National Weather Service, and the water pressure is taking its toll on the city's streets. A road in downtown Chicago buckled Tuesday afternoon.

Rising water pressure caused the concrete on Jefferson Street to crack open.

A video, first posted by WGN, shows the street splitting for at least ten feet. The buckle startled a pedestrian, sending them running.

Jefferson was closed Wednesday from Monroe to Adams so that emergency crews could repair the buckle.
