The T.V reported This Morning that Wheatland Center road will be closed for a week because of a Sink hole . An old Gypsum Mine close to the Surface is the cause . Ebsary Road is South of where the Collapse is and is an area that has had problems before . The Town of Wheatland has many areas with abandoned Mines close to the Surface . This is in Western New York State in the County of Monroe . Look west of Garbutt on the Map .
