CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — A sinkhole formed on a Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton street Monday, prompting officials to close a nearby school.
Officials shut down Carnes Road near Wire Mountain Road, according to a Facebook post from the military base. Santa Margarita Elementary School officials announced that the school would be closed Tuesday and Wednesday due to limited access to the campus.

The base was also providing a shuttle for those impacted by the road closure.
Stuart Mesa Road just north of the 41 Area to Las Pulgas Road remained closed Monday due to flooding and poor road conditions, along with Beach Club Road. Traffic control points were set up on Basilone Road from the 51 Area gas station to San Onofre housing.
