(KMOV) – Crews worked Thursday evening to repair a large section of city sidewalk which collapsed as storms wreaked havoc throughout the St. Louis area.

The large section of sidewalk at Scott Avenue crumpled after the ground underneath gave out from heavy rain.

No one was hurt and crews blocked off a section of traffic in the area in case more sidewalk collapsed on a street that runs adjacent to it.

Parts of the St. Louis region received more than 5 inches of rain in recent days, most of it on Thursday as three separate storms rolled through the area.
