2 buildings evacuated after cave-in at construction site in Hod Hasharon

Two buildings are temporarily evacuated in the central Israel city of Hod Hasharon following a cave-in at a nearby construction site.

The incident on Hatzanhanim Street comes after several sinkholes recently opened up on roads in central Israel due to rain damage or damaged pipelines.

The municipality says the evacuation was carried out at the recommendation of rescue services out an abundance of caution until an initial assessment of the damage could be carried out.

The municipality says the incident likely occurred due to work on an underground parking lot, posing fear that the shifting land could have moved scaffolding.

Nearby roads have been closed off.
