The people who work at Prudential Realty have watched a hole in the road outside their office grow from an indentation to a full-fledged crater right in front of their eyes.
It's been the source of many cringe-worthy moments along Kapahulu Avenue as drivers are caught by surprise. At least one person on Facebook told KITV it shredded his tire.
But as of Tuesday, the hole was no more.
Honolulu city facility maintenance director Ross Sasamura told KITV city crews fill 700 to 2,000 potholes each week, but they don't know about them until someone tells them.
"One of the things we depend on is the public to help us find these potholes that they tend to dodge on their way to work and on the way home, whatever the cause may be," Sasamura said.
Residents who spot a pothole can call 768-7777 to report it to the city.
City officials dispatched a crew to fill the so-called "evil hole" after they received inquiries from the media.
So far this year, crews said they've patched nearly 9.400 potholes after receiving more than 1,200 complaints.
