An engineering report on a sinkhole that closed an East Tennessee elementary school says surveyors found cracks throughout the building.

Love Chapel Elementary School in Unicoi County has been closed since neighbors first discovered the 120-feet hole last month.

The report found cracks ranging in size and severity inside classrooms, along the outside of the building, and in walkways and hallways.

The school district has asked for additional testing at the school, including seismic testing that started this week.
