LITTLE CANADA, Minn. -- It appears Saturday's extreme heat has caused a metro area road to buckle.

A Minnesota Department of Transportation camera captured the incident Saturday evening in the westbound lanes of Highway 36 near Edgerton Street on the border of Little Canada and St. Paul.

It shows vehicles being launched into the air as they drive over the buckle.

MnDOT crews have since repaired the road.
