Storm creates sinkhole beneath car in Manitowoc

Tuesday's storms left destruction across Southeastern Wisconsin. Manitowoc police are reporting one incident in the parking lot of a museum.

During the storms, the ground of the Maritime Museum parking lot gave way beneath a vehicle, creating a large sinkhole. 

Police say the vehicle was partially submerged in the sinkhole before being pulled out by a tow truck.

The department received 10 other weather-related calls on Tuesday of reports of trees down, manhole covers missing and wires down.

The Maritime Museum parking lot remains out of service until further notice.
