ROUND ROCK, Texas - A water leak that caused a sinkhole In Round Rock led to a much bigger discovery Thursday — a cave.

The roof of the cave collapsed on the 8400 block of Cambria Road in Williamson County, leaving 10 homes in the Brushy Creek neighborhood without water.

Barriers have been put up around the sinkhole, and many photos of the sinkhole and cave have now surfaced on social media.

A video posted to Facebook by a woman who lives near the sinkhole shows a biologist holding what could be either a stalactite or stalagmite allegedly found in the cave.

The biologist in that video can be heard saying, "Part of the cave was flooded from the broken water line.”

An official with the Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District confirmed that the photo showing a person walking in the cavern was taken in the same cave where the sinkhole is located on Cambria Road.

The county and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality are working to determine the best solution to repair the road after the cave was revealed, according to a Williamson County Facebook post.
