The soggy weather and melting snow may be to blame for a massive hole in the backyard of a Duluth couple's home.
The Lombardi's backyard runs up against the Munger Trail in the Smithville neighborhood.
On Tuesday, their yard was covered in snow.
By Wednesday, it was covered in mud.
A mudslide had filled the creek that once flowed through their yard
"I woke up this morning and looked out the window and there was a big sinkhole up on top by the Munger Trail," said Dareld Lombardi. "Then I walked to my backyard and the whole creek was full of debris from the hill."
Lombardi said after the floods of 2012, the area was filled with rocks. It is that same area that gave way Wednesday morning.
Luckily, he said, his house sits higher and the creek is not flooding his basement.
