"Stretch zones primarily experience sinking ground, as the support in the rock strata is stretched thin. Thus, buildings implode and gas and water mains break."  ZetaTalk






What happens to rock layers under a diagonal pull, or being pulled apart? As can be seen during recent years, this has resulted in derailing trains, sinkholes suddenly appearing, gas and water main breaks, torn roadways and separating bridges. Despite the effect on man, crawling about on the surface of what they assume to be terra firma, these changes are superficial. When the pulling starts, weak points break and thereafter the plumbing and roadways hold, giving the impression that the pulling has stopped, but this is misleading. The North American continent is giving evidence that its rock layers are separating from each other, and sliding sideways in a diagonal, thus exposing portions of these layers to vent into the air above. If rock is being stressed, then where are the earthquake predictors giving evidence of this, the frantic animals, the static on the radio, the earthquake swarms? Rock in the stretch zone, pulling apart rather than compressing, does not emit the particles flows that animals and radios sense, nor register on instruments are tension and release quakes.

"We have repeatedly stated that the Earth changes will not diminish, but will increase going into the pole shift.

This is not a lineal matter, as the closer Planet X comes to Earth, an inevitable path, the more the torque effect and the polar wobble where the N Pole of Earth is pushed away violently on a daily basis, occur. The wobble will become more pronounced, more violent. The plates are tugged back West of the Atlantic, pulled forward East of the Atlantic, during the daily rotation of the Earth. The North American continent is allowed to roll East during rotation while the S Pole is pulled West, creating the diagonal pull likely to trigger the New Madrid fault line into an adjustment, and soon. The N Pole is pushed away and allowed to bounce back, daily, as the Earth rotates, a wobble that puts stress on all fault lines when the plates are suddenly in motion, and suddenly stopped!

"As there is no other explanation for the effect on the stretch zone, lacking any earthquakes to blame, and as these stretch zone accidents will continue to emerge, and with ferocity, this is a certain clue to those on the fence, that the influence of Planet X is the cause. Or is it Global Warming?" 

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 13, 2013

"Sinkholes almost invariably form in areas subject to karst limestone cavern formation. Underground water flows eat away the limestone leaving vast caverns and caves, which often give scant indication above ground that a cavern lies below. Karst limestone rock formations have been mapped and are known, however, but since one never knows just where a cavern might have formed, this provides little help in predicting just where a sinkhole might form. Sinkholes open up when the rock is fractured due to stress from being in the stretch zone, from the bending of a plate, or due to torsion."

Ottawa Sinkhole Closes Intersection At Laurier Avenue East And Waller Street

Huffington Post Canada  |  Posted: 02/21/2014 10:30 am EST  |  Updated: 02/21/2014 10:59 am EST

A large sinkhole swallowed up part of an Ottawa street overnight, forcing road closures and the shutdown of a nearby transit station.

It happened around 1 a.m., just south of Laurier Avenue East, the Ottawa Citizen reports. Luckily, no one was injured.

The Waller Street collapse also prompted a shutdown of tunneling work on the city's light-rail transit project this morning. Crews just started tunnelling around the clock in the area on Wednesday.

The city told The Citizen that crews were filling the sinkhole with concrete to stabilize it. At 25 feet wide and 40 feet deep, we're guessing they're going to need a lot of concrete.

Woman is critically ill after ground apparently collapsed from under her car in Swansea - February 19

WOMAN is critically ill in hospital after being injured when the ground apparently collapsed from under her car.

Emergency were called to a house on Caemawr Road in Morriston yesterday morning, and the woman — who is in her 50s — was taken to hospital.

Police have launched an investigating into what happened, and are still waiting to interview her.

It is believed the car at the centre of the probe was parked at the rear of the property when a section of the garden collapsed under it, causing the vehicle to partially fall into a hole injuring her.

Oregon woman, dog rescued from sinkhole - February 18, 2014

This image provided by the Portland Oregon Fire & Rescue shows the sinkhole where a woman was rescued unharmed after falling into the 20-foot-deep sinkhole that opened up in her backyard Tuesday night Feb. 18. The Portland woman and her dog were both unhurt after falling into a 20-foot-deep sinkhole on Tuesday night.

PORTLAND, Ore. — A Portland fire official says a woman and her dog have been rescued unharmed after falling into a 20-foot-deep sinkhole that opened up in her backyard.

Portland Fire & Rescue Lt. Rich Chatman says the woman in her 30s was trying to find her small poodle mix Tuesday night in her dark Portland backyard when she fell into a sinkhole about 3½ feet in diameter. A neighbor who heard her calls for help called 911.

Fire crews used rope and ground ladders to rescue them. Chatman says fire officials at the scene were amazed that both escaped unhurt.

The spokesman says a neighbor who shares a property line said both homeowners had been required to do some recent work on their sewage system.

Crews were covering up the hole temporarily late Tuesday.

Sinkhole causes three houses to be evacuated in North Yorkshire - February 17, 2014

Police clear properties and cordon off area after 7-metres-wide sinkhole appears in street in Ripon
Sinkhole in High Wycombe
Three houses have been evacuated amid fears they could collapse after a 7-metres-wide (25ft) sinkhole opened up in a street.  It is the ninth sinkhole to appear in England over the past month, and the first in the recent spate outside the south-east.

The homeowner Peter Cunningham said he could not open the backdoor when he and his wife, Susan, returned home last night. “I looked up at the wall and there’s a big crack at the side of the back door. I thought that’s not right,” he told Sky News.

“Then I could hear it coming away above my head. It’s like being in a nightmare. I could see the house opening up,” he said.

Police cleared the properties on Magdalen's Close in Ripon, North Yorkshire, at 5.40pm after receiving reports the huge sinkhole had appeared.

A North Yorkshire police spokesman said: "The affected property and two houses nearby have been evacuated and a cordon has been put in place to protect members of the public. At this stage no injuries have been reported."

Eight other sinkholes to open up so far this month:

• On 2 February, a 30ft sinkhole opened up in a driveway in Walter’s Ash, near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and swallowed a Volkwagon Lupo. Phil Conran, said his teenage daughter, Zoe, had a narrow escape: “The car is on its side, its full of soil and she certainly, we don’t think, would have got out of it had she been in it, had she driven in and it had happened.”

• Last week, a 17ft-deep hole appeared next to a child’s trampoline in a back garden in Barnehurst, south-east London. Gretel Davidson, told This is Local London, that her 12-year-old daughter Mia discovered the hole. She said: “Mia rang me to say, ‘Mum there is a massive hole in the garden.’ It is just unbelievable to think a hole that size could appear overnight and out of nowhere.”

• 11 February: a 10-mile stretch of the M2, near Sittingbourne, in north Kent was closed after a 15ft hole appeared in the central reservation, near Sittingbourne. The AA’s president, Edmund King, blamed the wet weather. Two more sinkholes have since appeared within a mile of the central reservation crater, according to ITV.

• 12 February: a family car was left hovering over a gas pipe when a sinkhole opened up in a driveway in Upper Basildon, west of Reading. The home is near the site of a former brick yard.

• 14 February: a sinkhole appeared near the sports hall of Rainham Mark Grammar School, in Gillingham, Kent. Initial indications suggest it was triggered by drainage.

• 14 February: A second hole appeared in nearby Darland Avenue, Gillingham on a pitch used by the Anchorians Rugby Club.

• 15 February: 17 homes were evacuated when a 35ft-wide hole opened up in a cul-de-sac in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. Amateur video captured the extent of the damage.

Amateur footage shows a large sinkhole in Hemel Hempstead on Saturday. Seventeen homes were later evacuated.
• On 16 February, a 20ft-deep chasm appeared in the back garden of a suburban home in Croxley Green, near Watford. A house and three flats were evacuated, the Watford Observer reported.

A huge sinkhole has opened up in a suburban cul-de-sac, forcing 17 houses to be evacuated and leaving one home teetering on the brink of a 20ft drop.

Police officers cordoned off the road in Hemel Hertforshire, Hertfordshire, after the 35ft-wide crater appeared at 7.30am following weeks of rain.

One woman who was evacuated told local radio station Heart the ground had been sinking for weeks, reporter Amy Woodfield said on Twitter.

SECOND giant sinkhole appears in Kent - this time in a mum's back garden

Engineers have told Gretel Davidson the 17ft-deep crater is a "total act of God"

 Huge: The crater in Gretel Davidson's back garden could fit a double  decker bus

Emma Stoner / Newsquest / Cascade News

A second giant sinkhole has opened up in Kent - this time in a family's back  garden.

Gretel Davidson said she didn't believe her 12-year-old daughter when she  rang her to say a huge black hole had appeared in their lawn.

But when she got home she discovered the 17ft-deep, 10ft-wide chasm.

The sinkhole is the second to appear in the region after a 15ft-deep hole appeared  in the central reservation of the M2 yesterday.

Experts have suggested they could be a result of the recent wet weather.

Shocked Gretel is now facing a £10,000 bill to have it repaired because her  insurers say it hasn't damaged her home and they won't be paying up.

Gretel, a radiographer from Barnehurst, Bexleyheath, said: "I just feel  totally helpless. Mia rang me to say 'Mum there is a massive hole in the  garden'.

"I didn't really believe her and just thought she was going over the top.

"It is just unbelievable to think a hole that size could appear overnight and  out of nowhere."

Gretel, 55, knocked on her neighbour's doors to try and get some help but  nobody had any idea what to do.

She added: "I got in touch with the council but they said they couldn't help because it's my own property.

"I then got in touch with Halifax, my home insurance, and they said the hole  is too far away from my home so they couldn't help either.

"I am just devastated. I spent the whole weekend crying and have been doing  everything I can to try and sort it out."

Structural engineer Dan Baker, director of DJB Structural Engineers Ltd in  Erith, looked at the hole on Saturday and is drawing up an action plan.

He said: "It is a naturally occurring oblique swallow hole. It could cost  upwards of £10,000 to fix.

"It is just one of those things you cannot predict - a total act of God.

"They are not common but they have been known to happen in this area in the  past.

"Thankfully nobody was in the garden because someone could have died.

"We have got to make it safe as soon as possible."

Sinkhole collapses part of Corvette Museum in Kentucky USA - February 12

— Eight Corvettes fell into a sinkhole that opened up beneath a section of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday.

The sinkhole, about 40 feet wide and about 25 to 30 feet deep, appeared before dawn under the skydome section of the museum, said Executive Director Wendell Strode.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said six of the cars were owned by the museum and two — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors.

Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster said the hole opened up at about 5:40 a.m. CST Wednesday, setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department. Frassinelli said no one was in the museum at the time.

The hole is in part of the domed section of the museum, and that area will remain closed. That's an original part of the facility for which was completed in 1994.

Frassinelli said the rest of the museum was open Wednesday.

The other cars damaged were a 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 white 1.5 Millionth Corvette.

Lancaster said information was still being gathered about what exactly happened, but it appeared to be the first incident of its kind at the property.

Bowling Green sits in the midst of the state's largest karst region — the Western Pennyroyal area, where many of Kentucky's longest and deepest caves run underground. A karst display distinctive surface features, including sinkholes.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Frassinelli said a structural engineer has been called to the museum to assess existing damage and the stability of the surrounding area.

The museum is set to host the 2014 Corvette Caravan in September, a celebration marking the 20th anniversary of the museum.

M2 Closed By 15ft-Deep Sinkhole In Rush Hour

11 February 2014

A 15ft-deep sinkhole has closed the M2 - and experts claim the wet weather battering England could be to blame.

Engineers are conducting emergency repair work near Sittingbourne in Kent but the motorway remains closed in both directions between junctions 5 and 6.

Long tailbacks have now developed either side of the 10-mile stretch.

The Highways Agency said: "Road users are advised that the M2 is currently closed for urgent safety investigations and repairs after a large hole opened up in the central reservation.

"The Highways Agency and its contractors are working hard to investigate the hole and the necessary repairs and will reopen lanes as soon as it is safe to do so.

"Traffic heading to and from Dover is advised to use the M20."

A representative from the AA believes the hole, which is almost 17x7ft across, could have been caused by the extreme weather being endured by much of southern England.

"The M2 started operating in 1965 and I am not aware of any previous collapses so perhaps this is yet another casualty of the exceptionally wet weather," said AA roads policy head Paul Watters.

"We hope the Highways Agency can quickly resolve the problem as this is a key route to the port of Dover and to east Kent."

A signed diversion is now in place via the A249, the M20, the A20, the A252 and the A251.

Motoring organisations have campaigned for more funding to fix and prevent holes on the road network, but the AA claims no amount of money would have prevented Tuesday's incident.

"Thankfully this was on the central reservation," said company president Edmund King. "If a hole of this nature had opened up on a carriageway it could well have led to tragedy.

"I don't think this is anything to do with potholes or general maintenance. There seems to have been some structural anomaly - perhaps some sort of geological fault or an old mineshaft.

"Clearly, it's a concern that this has happened on a busy motorway that leads to and from the coast. Engineers will want to deal with this as soon as possible. If the stretch of motorway stays shut it will cause traffic problems, but safety must come first."

Fifteen feet is taller than a double-decker bus.

Earlier this month a sinkhole measuring 30ft-deep swallowed a car after opening on the driveway of a house in High Wycombe.

Nobody was inside the VW Lupo when the ground on Main Road in Walter's Ash gave way.

Lots of sinkholes today...  This one is in the same county (High Wycombe, UK) as the "car swallower" from last week (Howards post from 2/2).

Sinkhole appears in Gerrards Cross garden

Five foot deep sinkhole opens in Austenwood Lane  garden, just a few days after High Wycombe 'car swallower'

A sinkhole has appeared in the garden of a home in Gerrards Cross - the second to appear in the county within a week.

Reader Emma Baker sent us in this picture of the 5ft deep hole, which has opened up in her garden in Austenwood Lane.

It follows another hole, estimated to be about 15 feet, which opened in a road in High Wycombe last week following the heavy rainfall, and swallowing an entire car.

No one was inside the VW Lupo when the ground on Main Road, in Walter's Ash, opened up at 8.32am on Sunday.

The car, which belongs to a girl living at the property, is still at the bottom of the hole on its side.

Sinkholes are rare but are created by a depression or collapse of earth beneath the surface.

Fortunately no one was injured when the earth collapsed
