A sinkhole has swallowed cars and caused major traffic delays in Perth.
A water main burst causing the gaping hole on Kingsley Drive in Kingsley at about 3am on Sunday.
The water was knee deep in some areas as the sinkhole swallowed two cars, 9 News reported.

One property was completely flooded and many others suffered water damage, authorities said.

Local resident Betty Walker told 9 News she was woken up by a council ranger who told her the water was creeping up to her home.

‘I would have woken up to a flood if they hadn’t woken me up,’ she said.

‘I said (to my son) you might have to come and get me out in a boat.’

The SES spent Sunday morning sandbagging properties to protect them from rising water.

The Water Corporation said it would pay for any damages not covered by insurance.
