New York news affiliate WABC is reporting that workers are working to shore up a Bronx construction site that seemed unstable, prompting the evacuation of at least nine residential buildings.

An engineer reported the Southern Boulevard building appeared unstable just before 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Support joints on the second floor of the structure looked stretched.

Three apartment buildings on Southern Boulevard and six more on Hoe Avenue were evacuated as a precaution. By around 9 a.m., the 42 residents of the nine evacuated buildings were allowed back into their homes.

Subway service on No. 2 and 5 lines, which was suspended, resumed but with delays.

The building under construction appears to be the six-story future home of a $45 million Children's Aid College Prep Charter School.
