01.08.12. Road collapse in Mexicali, Mexico. A strong rumbling was heard in the House №812 of the avenu Republic of Uruguay, said Eric Villavicencio, a resident of the House, and it was a big surprise when he saw the road sinking 6 meters deep and 18 meters long. A vehicle fell into a hole almost 33 feet in diameter and about 16 feet deep after a sewage drain broke under Uruguay Avenue following the heavy rain. Families from 10 private homes near the area were evacuated.
02.08.12. Another crack appeared in the community of Bocas, San Luis Potosí, México. Civil defence Director Gerardo Cabrera Olivo said that although crack, wich appeared a few days ago between the community Bocas and Villa de Arista, is one of the most long, this no poses danger to the population.
He repeated that the geologic fault could be provoked by heating the Earth and drought, which is registered in the area, although at this point is a study to determine the exact cause.
