Tipster Steven Y. reports, and online sources confirm, that a sinkhole has opened on Mission Street between Second and New Montgomery:
"SFPD and SFFD have blocked off Mission between 2nd and New Montgomery. Family of five in car have been removed with no injuries."
Many have taken to Twitter to post photos of the scene:
