HOUSTON - A sinkhole is causing problems for drivers in west Houston.

It's located on Memorial Drive near Beltway 8.

The sinkhole was first reported to police around 6 a.m. Friday after several drivers got flat tires. City crews were able to cover the big hole with a steel plank, but said it's not a long-term solution.
