No injuries were reported and emergency officials have roped off the area to keep people away.

“The cause of the sinkhole is still under investigation, and our primary concern continues to be the safety of our guests and team members. Therefore, the restaurant will remain closed until all necessary repairs have been completed,” IHOP spokesman Craig Hoffman was quoted by CNN as saying.

A drone captured amazing video footage of the damage to the parking lot and cars.

The sinkhole is estimated to be about 50 feet wide, over 600 feet in length and 15 feet deep.
