Repairs start at Sunrise canal

January 19, 2011 01:31AM

Repairs have begun on the canal in Sunrise that destroyed six backyards, although the cause of the collapse is yet to be determined. City commissioners approved a $225,000 plan to fix the canal last week, with a new bank being built by dumping boulders into the canal, as seen in the video above. The whole process should take around three weeks. “You expect a hurricane to hit, but not a canal to eat up your house,” one of the affected homeowners, Eric Weglinski, said days after the incident.
