BOONE — A sinkhole emerged in the back of the parking lot of Precision Printing, located at 1302 Blowing Rock Road in Boone, after heavy rains on May 1.

This is not the first sinkhole to emerge along the Blowing Rock Road corridor in recent years. Pavement collapsed in two areas of the former Frogurt yogurt shop parking lot on Blowing Rock Road, an area where water often flows over the lot en route to a storm drain, in 2013.

The large amount of rainfall also caused flooding and temporary road and driveway closures throughout the county.
