should I panic about the ground sinking over my sewer line?

the ground above my sewer line sank about 4" while I was at work today. There's no smell. Do I need to get this fixed on Saturday, or can it wait until Monday?

The house was built in 1947, and I bought it 2 years ago. The was some depression in the ground over the sewer line when I bought the house, but until today, it stayed about the same, so I just figured the ground had settled and never been leveled off. I live in Oregon, and it's been raining a lot (duh). I'm planning on staying with friends ~2 hours away on Saturday night, so I can shower at the gym and get through the weekend without sending anything down the drain. I left vmails for 2 plumbers, but neither of them had an emergency number.... is it OK to just get someone here monday morning? do I need to cancel weekend plans?
