China. Residents of Chengdu, Sichuan Province witnessed an unusual phenomenon - the roadbed suddenly slough, and then it formed long, narrow cracks, from which clay mud flow started foaming. On the same evening water in the local supply lines became yellow, it is not suitable for use.
This happened on June 17 about 15 hours near the local market. The puddle of yellow mud slowly spreading over the sidewalk. People thought it was a harbinger of impending disaster and began to disperse hastily.
The local media has not seen any reports about this, so many local people with whom The Epoch Times correspondent contacted know nothing about this.
"The authorities do not want the media to publish such news, so those who have not seen the events with their own eyes or heard from friends, often do not know anything about them. When such things happen, the authorities immediately encircle the area around and hang a sign that says "Repair of the road" and nobody would be allowed ", - explained a resident of Chengdu, Ms. Zeng.
There were no explanations of this phenomenon from the experts. One of the websites published only an explanation from a construction worker on one of those sites. He said that this is a common phenomenon that has occurred as a result of construction works and there will be no bad consequences.
Although many Internet users said that they trust ordinary worker more than the "experts", who are usually employed / involved by the government, but explanations given were not fully convincing for them. Some even expressed the view that this is a new trick of the government, which knew that no one believes their "experts", so they used a "representative of the people".
Many also reminded themselves the shots from the famous film "2012".
"The earthquakes, land implosions, drought, floods, heavy rains, our grapes will not mature this year because there was no bees during its flowering, it is unclear where they went. Now yellow water from the ground follows. It is becoming more and more like footage from the movie ["2012"], "- wrote one Chinese blogger.
Within few hours two thousand people expressed their opinions about this topic on online forum. In general, they expressed their distrust of government and fear of impending disaster.
Currently, most messages have disappeared. Most likely website moderator deleted them by the order of local authorities, which is common in China, so the authorities maintain "stability" in society.
Few days ago in the same province of Sichuan, on Chengdu road, at least 80 wells with a diameter of about one meter and a depth of 30 cm formed in one day.
