Neighbors are concerned about the latest pipeline problem.

"I'm very disturbed about having a sinkhole this close to our property, and I worry about the cars going along there and another one on the street possibly opening up," neighbor Sherry Martin said.

Crews are filling the latest hole and they will re-examine the repairs Tuesday.

Sunoco temporarily shut down the pipeline earlier this year after another sinkhole developed in Chester County.
