"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."

Sinkhole Opens Up in Tarpon Springs, Florida

Discovered April 2nd

A sinkhole has opened up along a street in Tarpon Springs. Witnesses say it's about about five to six feet deep and about 10 feet wide and it keeps growing.

South Disston Avenue was waterlogged in the storms earlier this week and now the sinkhole has opened up.

Jessica Canary's mother lives in the neighborhood and says it's the first time she's seen a sinkhole up close in person. Canary says, "I would have never expected it here in Tarpon. I live in Holiday. Holiday - New Port Richey sure - but not here."

Canary says she's never seen the neighborhood flood like it did this week either.

30-ft Deep Sinkhole Opens Near Elementary School - Orlando, Florida

Discovered March 30th


Lake County school officials are filling a 30-foot deep sinkhole that opened last night at Sorrento Elementary School.

School employees noticed around 9 p.m. Thursday a nearby retention pond that had been filled by this week's heavy rain went bare.

"The retention pond magically emptied," school-district spokesman Chris Patton said.

Officials then saw the sinkhole near the school bus loop about a football field away from the main building. There was no damage to the bus loop.

As a precaution, buses unloaded students this morning at the parent dropoff zone in front of the school.

Officials hope to fill the hole within an hour or two, Patton said.

"We're pretty lucky," he said, because the county owns nearby property and had some dirt to spare. "They're letting us use that dirt," he explained.

No injuries were reported, Patton said. The area where the sinkhole appeared is fenced off.

Sorrento Elementary opened this school year. There are 780 students enrolled there.

Batesburg, SC  My daughter was going over the train track coming back from food shopping and saw this pothole with a cop standing over it dazed and confused.  It's about 10 feet from the tracks They certainly can't blame this on weather of any kind.  Today was the 1st day of drizzle in a couple of weeks, no water mains near the area, not due to too much traffic as this is a rural area.  By the time I got there the officer had put up a small barrier.  The hole is about the size of a beachball but the sunken cracking around it is about 3 feet around.  Interesting as we get closer to the tearing of the New Madrid.

"This is Monterey Avenue.  Santa Cruz County Public Works told us the sink hole was caused by a culvert-- which was so full of water-- it overflowed and eventually made the road above it... collapse.

"The good news for people living there, the sink hole is at the the *end of the street and did not affect traffic."

Sinkhole Causing Headaches In Manchester, Connecticut

Discovered March 17th

A sizeable sinkhole in Manchester is causing trouble much longer than expected.

Crews have been working on the sinkhole since Thursday afternoon. People who live near the busy crossroad bordering East Hartford, Manchester and South Windsor are finding that the easiest way to get around the area is on foot.

The town of South Windsor is making the repairs because it was the town's 24-inch sewer line caused the 15-foot-deep hole.

The initial belief was the pipe was going to be replaced and the road patched up by midday Friday. But crews keep finding more and more of the sewer line needed to be replaced.

"We're hopeful that we get 10, 15 feet down, and we'll be able to find pipe that is structurally sound," said Michael Gantick, of the South Windsor Department of Public Works.

The good news is that no one has lost sewer service because of sinkhole, and this line serves customers including the Buckland Hills Mall area nearby.

"We have these large pumps, and we basically have these pipes across the road to the next manhole using gravity so there's no interruption," Gantick said.

Officials said the best-case scenario was for the repairs to be finished by Saturday. The worst case was for repairs to be completed sometime Monday.

30-Foot-Wide Sinkhole Along Bike Path - Middletown, OH

Discovered March 14th

The city will spend about $265,000 to fix a 30-foot-wide sinkhole off of Sixth Avenue.

City Council passed emergency legislation Tuesday to appropriate the money from the sewer capital fund to repair the large hole, which is located along a grassy edge of the bike path. The sinkhole is about 15 feet deep and formed because of holes in the top of a corrugated sewer interceptor pipe, according to Public Works Director Dave Duritsch.

Heavy saturation from several days of rain caused the ground above the pipe to sink through the holes Monday and be flushed away. Duritsch said the pipe is about 60 years old and “beyond its reasonable life span.”

No homes are directly connected to the pipe and the incident has not caused a blockage. A bid by SK Construction indicates it will take at least $265,000 to replace the pipe — which stretches about 1,000 feet underground between two manholes. But Duritsch said given the age of the pipe, it’s possible more damage could be found that would increase costs.

Construction is expected to begin immediately. Residents living on Sixth Avenue should not be affected.

Because the sinkhole and subsequent damage to the pipe and bike path were not anticipated replacements, Duritsch said the city will stall plans to replace sewer linings on pipes off Yankee Road for at least another year.

The fix should be covered by the about $1.3 million in the sewer fund and will not result in an assessment to nearby homeowners, Duritsch said.

Many of Middletown’s sewer and water pipes are aging and Duritsch said it is difficult to assess their condition because they are underground. Regarding funding to repair roads, Duritsch said there is little money available to be proactive with pipe replacements.

Councilman Josh Laubach said the city needs to map out plans to set aside money to make infrastructure repairs, and he hopes to figure out ways to allocate more money for roads and sewers in 2012.

“This potentially could be a really big issue down the road,” he said.

Massive Pipe Breaks Through the Road in Knoxville, Tennessee
Discovered March 10th
video

All Shrewsbury Drive resident Dora Gafencu can do is look across her street Thursday night, and see all the damage caused by the recent rainfall.

"Car is making a big 'boom boom' and I'm coming back from the church and the big hole was other there," she explained.

Earlier this week, a massive pipe broke through the road across from her house, causing Shrewsbury to close. Steve King of Knoxville Public Works said the heavy rainfall was a factor to this problem.

"We have a old pipe that historically rusts out and we don't use that kind of pipe anymore," he said.

Public Works is also focusing their cleanup efforts on Timothy Avenue, near the Knoxville Zoo. The stormwater caused several sinkholes to pop up. Crews said until the dry weather comes, they cannot do much to alleviate the problem.

"Detour people around and I understand that we have the new concrete pipe delivered and we hope to get a crane here soon to set it in the trench,"" King added.

Knoxville is more than 1" above the average rainfall as of March 10.

In Blount County, crews had a number of power outages to deal with. Alcoa Electric said about 500 outages were reported Wednesday into Thursday; many of those were in the Townsend area.

"Knocked out power and 12 to 15 trees (fell on power lines)," said Alcoa Electric's Trevor Morgan. "The Wildwood area, the Laurel Valley area (were affected)."

Meanwhile, while the power is back on, all people can do is wait for crews to start working on the roads, and bring life back to normal.

"Maybe tomorrow?" laughed neighbor Gafencu

Sinkhole swallowed two parked cars near the Humboldt Bridge in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin - March 12th

Video

City crews are working to ensure that a sinkhole near the Humboldt Bridge does not widen, Milwaukee Department of Public Works spokeswoman Cecilia Gilbert said Sunday.

The 10-foot deep, 625-square-foot hole, caused by a water main break, swallowed two parked cars Saturday night.

Gilbert said traffic is back to normal in the area around the paved ramp that connects the bridge to Riverboat Road, adjacent to Stubby's Pub & Grub restaurant, 2060 N. Humboldt Ave.

The two cars remain in the hole. The city is making arrangements to get a crane to extract them, Gilbert said.

Nobody was in the cars and nobody was injured.

Milwaukee Police reported that the water main break caused several other breaks and flooding throughout the north side of the city. The break occurred around 8 p.m., when residents reported low water pressure.

Gilbert said the main was 42 inches, a large size.  Source

 

 Sinkhole Closes One Lane Of 14th Street NW - Washington, DC

Discovered March 12th


The westbound lane of 14th Street between F and G Street NW has been closed to traffic due to a sinkhole.
 
DC Department of Transportation spokesperson John Lisle says the collapse of the road happened around 10:30 AM and that it appears to have been caused by a broken 6"water main.

DC Water says crews are currently repairing the water main and that some customers may experience a disruption in water service until repairs are complete.

DC Water officials estimate repairs to be completed and the street reopened by midnight.

 

Sinkhole Repair Closes East Knox Road - Knoxville, Tennesse

Discovered March 11th

A sinkhole caused by a broken water line will force the closure today of Stony Point Road in East Knox County.

Jim Snowden, with the Knox County department of engineering and public works, said his crews determined the sinkhole near the road was caused by a Knoxville Utilities Board water line.

The Knox County E-911 Center was alerted about 7:30 a.m. of the sinkhole at 1980 Stoney Point Road near Stoney Point Baptist Church. That's near the intersection with Thorn Grove Pike.

Snowden said the hole wasn't in the road, but was weakening one lane that has been closed.

Both lanes will be closed throughout the day, Snowden said, to allow KUB crews to excavate the pipe and repair the roadway. He estimated the road will be reopen by late this afternoon.

 

Sinkhole on Judson Street and Pioneer Way - Gig Harbor, Washington

Discovered March 9th

The City of Gig Harbor continues to investigate the cause of the sinkhole at the intersection of Judson Street and Pioneer Way.

According to Public Works Superintendent Marco Malich, his crew responded to the site after a citizen member notified the city around noon on Wednesday.

He credited the public for reporting the problem before the asphalt fell through completely.

"It could have caved in," he said "It was good that we got on it as quick as we did."

The sinkhole temporarily shut down Judson Street in front of Key Bank and one of the lanes on Pioneer Way.
During the investigation, the crew drilled a 10-by-8 hole and almost 10 feet into the ground to determine the cause.

Although the exact (cause) is still unknown, Malich said sinkholes typically occur when utility pipes are installed, and there isn't enough soil compaction under the road. He also said a punctured storm line could cause the land to depress.

Once the water flow in the basin decreases on Thursday, Malich said they will go down a nearby manhole to inspect further damage.

"From looking at the structure from the above, it does appear that we could have some watering issues that we're going to be taking care of."

In the meantime, he said the road is sealed, and it is safe for drivers to travel down Pioneer Way.

 

Sinkhole Opens on Brockton Street - Brockton, Massachusetts

Discovered March 8th

Bob Monaghan wakened to a loud boom on Monday morning – then saw an oil truck stuck in a sinkhole on Conant Drive.

The truck had been on its way to Monaghan’s raised ranch to fill the oil tank, but it never made it as its wheels got stuck in thick mud oozing from underneath the pavement.

The 8:15 a.m. incident led police, fire, DPW crews and two large cranes to the cul-de-sac on the city’s West Side to remove the truck from the deep rut.

“The most amazing thing was they put a big yellow strap around the truck and literally picked it up like a big baby,” said Monaghan, 58, from the living room of his home on Monday.

Mark Willis, the truck driver, said he had a sinking feeling – after his truck couldn’t go any further.

At first, Willis thought all the tires on the passenger side went flat. Then, the asphalt started shooting out from underneath the truck, he said.

“When I looked down, I was like, ‘Holy cow.’ The truck just sank,” said Willis, 50, of West Bridgewater. “I mean, it was just all muck.”

Monday afternoon, bright red street cones surrounded a large patch of Conant Drive where the sinkhole appeared. Large areas of brown mud seeped through cracks in the asphalt.

After the truck sank, crews pumped out about 17,000 pounds of fuel into another truck to lighten the load so that cranes could lift the vehicle out of the hole.

“We’ve certainly on driveways had some issues, but I don’t recall ever having had a vehicle fall into a road, ever,” said Jim Bicknell, owner of the Weymouth-based Alvin Hollis & Co.

He said the vehicle checked out “completely fine” for its weight limit.

Michael Thoreson, Brockton’s Department of Public Works commissioner, said he’s not sure exactly why the sinkhole occurred.

“It could be water underneath the pavement. The pavement just gave way,” Thoreson said.

Last year, the city saw a couple of similar incidents, where water ran underneath the asphalt top and “kind of erodes the bottom,” he said.

“Another issue could be a private subdivision where the road wasn’t built to specification ... over the years that breaks down,” he said.

City crews are assessing damages on Conant Drive, he said.

It was unclear on Monday when the street would be fixed, since Conant Drive is a private road and is not eligible for state or federal funding, Thoreson said.

“We’ll figure out what it looks like to fix, see what we got in the budget and see if we can get it fixed,” he said.

Shelley Monaghan, who lives on Conant Drive, hopes that happens soon.

“We’re on a cul-de-sac. I don’t know how fast it’s going to get fixed,” she said.

 

Large Sinkholes Cause Street Closures in Glendale and Phoenix (Arizona)

Discovered February 28th

A giant sinkhole forced the closure of northbound 67th Avenue at Camelback Road in Glendale Monday morning.

There were already restrictions in the area because of the construction on Camelback Road. That construction has been going on for some time, but now the huge sinkhole, probably caused by recent rain, is making the situation worse.

The sinkhole is about 12 feet wide and several feet deep. It’s right in the middle of the intersection.

According to the Glendale Fire Department, calls about the hole started coming in Sunday afternoon.

Drivers were able to avoid the hole so no injuries were reported. As a safety precaution, crews checked the area for gas leaks. There were no problems with that.

There’s no word when the hole will be fixed and the street reopened.

Drivers were being advised to use 59th or 75th avenues as alternates. While Camelback Road is open, drivers looking to avoid the situation completely might want to consider Indian School or Bethany Home roads.

A second sinkhole was reported on Seventh Street at Peoria Avenue in Phoenix. That hole is reportedly up to 15 feet deep and was caused by a water-main break. Seventh Street is restricted in the area; one lane is getting by in each direction. Cave Creek Road is the alternate route for that one.
