Stores in the Rideau Centre were back in business today but the food court was suddenly shut down after Ottawa Public Health issued a precautionary boil water advisory. The impact of the sinkhole along Rideau Street was rippling through the downtown core; many of the businesses along Rideau between Sussex and Dalhousie, affecting buses and tourists, too.

Pictures of a giant sinkhole aren't quite the photos Nick and Ann Beeden of Derbyshire, England expected to take on their holiday to Ottawa.
