The recent rain has caused some road issues in Polk County.

The Polk County Sheriff's Department confirmed that a large sinkhole opened up on Upper River Road just past Hitch Drive. That road is closed until further notice.

Benton Springs Road headed towards Chilhowee Mountain is also closed due. The sheriff's office said it is completely washed out.

No one was injured in either incident.
