TOKYO - Parts of a main street have collapsed in the heart of a major city in southern Japan, creating a massive sinkhole and cutting off power, water and gas supplies to parts of the city.

Authorities in Fukuoka say no injuries have been reported.

The sinkhole is more than half the size of an Olympic pool.

Today's incident prompted the evacuation of some residents in nearby buildings.
