"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."

'Satanic' sinkholes plague Johannesburg: MEC

Gauteng authorities have warned of an increasing risk of dolomitic sinkholes opening up around Johannesburg, which has cost 38 lives in the last 50 years.

"The dolomitic situation is satanic," says Gauteng MEC for local government and housing, Humphrey Mmemezi.

"[Residents don't realise] it comes during the night... .People can wake up and the section [of the township] is not there."

Greg Heath, an engineering geologist at the Council for Geoscience (CGS), says dolomite forms a loose belt around Johannesburg and makes up a quarter of the province. It stretches from Westonaria in the west to Centurion in the north and Thokoza in the east.

At least 2600 sinkholes have been recorded.

"The damage they have caused to development and infrastructure is estimated at a very conservative R1.5 billion.

"At least 38 people have died as a result of sinkholes and the number will increase if people do not move off unstable land," says Heath.

About 110 informal settlements exist on dolomitic land in Gauteng.

Heath says sinkholes are almost always man-induced and develop when communities move into an area with water-bearing services. In townships and informal settlements, leaking taps or burst pipes could trigger dolomitic erosion, which expands underground cavities.

In areas of mining or farming, dolomitic ground could become unstable through changes in the water table.

Two weeks ago, part of a street in Centurion collapsed as a sinkhole opened up. The 7m x 5m hole stretched over a lane of Jean Avenue, revealing water pipes and a dark depth below.

In Westonaria, an ever-growing sinkhole the size of a small dam and about 100 metres deep, lies a metre away from a tee-off at the local golf course.

That sinking feeling


That sinking feeling.

A portion of Upper Middle Road became “lower” middle road earlier this week after a large sinkhole swallowed part of the street.

The sinkhole was caused by an underground watermain break near a fire station on Upper Middle Road around 4 a.m. Wednesday. Kiyoshi Oka, Halton region’s director of water services, said corrosion caused the 16-inch ductile iron pipe, which is 36 years old, to burst. He said no water service was disrupted.

Upper Middle Road’s eastbound lanes were closed due to the size of the sinkhole. The watermain was repaired by 4 p.m. Wednesday.

A sinkhole shut down a busy intersection in downtown San Diego Friday.

The intersection of Pacific Highway and A Street was flooded due to a water main break Thursday at 8 p.m. Some people say the water was two feet high in some spots.

As a result early, a sinkhole opened up at the intersection.

Water was rerouted to residents in the area so no one was without water according to city officials.

Construction crews will work throughout Friday to repair the road. Pacific Highway before the morning commute.

Streets were shut down for several hours overnight

Sinkhole opens up on East Market Street in Pottsville

Nick Meyer/Staff photo Tony Gardner, maintenance supervisor, left, Joseph Mazzuca Jr., assistant vice president, center, and Chris Gardner, project manager, all with Mazzuca Enterprises Inc., Pottsville, look over a large sinkhole on East Market Street near Logan Street on Friday in Pottsville.

A portion of the street in front of the Zimmerman, Lieberman & Tamulonis Law Offices at 111 E. Market St. collapsed Friday afternoon, exposing an underground stream that runs through the city.

The Pottsville Sewer Authority and Mazzuca Enterprises Inc. were on scene about 3:45 p.m. to assess the damage.

"Basically, the stone arch collapsed," said Chris Gardner, Mazzuca Enterprises Inc. project manager. "It probably has something to do with the heavy rain."

Gardner said the ground opened up after a truck drove on the spot, scraping its bumper as the street fell. The damaged pipes were dead for years, said Gardner.

Mazzuca Enterprises will start repairing the road today and aim for completion in two days.

"We will work until it's done," said Gardner. "Depending on the weather, it might be until Monday."

Sinkhole opens up in Greensburg

Motorists needed to use extra caution on Tuesday near the Westmoreland County Courthouse, or else they could find their vehicles in a hole.

A 4-foot-deep sinkhole has emerged on West Pittsburgh Street near its intersection with South Pennsylvania Avenue. And loosened gravel created an indented trench on a lane of West Otterman Street, also near the courthouse.

Both are in areas where contractors for Peoples Natural Gas are replacing lines.

Greensburg officials have received more than 25 calls about the washed-out areas, City Administrator Sue Trout said.

"As I have concerns, I've been notifying the gas company," she said.

The sinkhole was blocked off with lighted emergency barriers, and workers were dispatched last night to repair it, Trout said. The area on Otterman was patched again earlier in the day, said Peoples spokesman Barry Kukovich.

In other locations, temporary patches have come undone as vehicles pass over them. Steel plates have been added to stop the surface wear and to allow further work, Trout said.

In late August, contractors for Peoples began working 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. shifts to replace cast iron pipes on sections of Pittsburgh, Main and Otterman streets. The city requested the nighttime work hours because the courthouse and most downtown businesses would be closed, and traffic would be lighter in the work areas.

"It's a safety project. That's our main priority," Kukovich said.

Until final paving can be done in the spring, temporary restoration work will be done where the lines have been installed, Kukovich said.

"I don't think the typical driver will notice it's temporary," he added.

The line replacement wasn't done in the latter part of the last decade, when Greensburg did its Streetscape project, and public water and sewer authorities tore up streets in the same area while replacing lines.

Former owner Dominion Peoples opted not to do the work then, said Greensburg Planner Barb Ciampini.

"I don't know why," she added. "My question to them is, 'Why didn't they do the project in 2009?' ... To me, they should have been there with us."

Peoples took over Dominion, which served several states and was based in Richmond, Va., in early 2010. Peoples serves more than 360,000 customers in 16 counties.

"I don't know why they made that decision," Kukovich said of Dominion. "We're a Western Pennsylvania company ... and our focus is Western Pennsylvania."

The lines need to be replaced, Ciampini said.

"I know it's hard on the roads, but it's helping to keep our town safe," she said.

Tampa sinkhole reopens, closing Fletcher and Nebraska intersection

Posted: Sep 27, 2011 05:56 AM

The intersection of Fletcher and Nebraska Avenues was once again problematic for morning commuters after a sinkhole, which had been filled overnight, reopened early Tuesday.
The intersection of Fletcher and Nebraska Avenues was once again problematic for morning commuters after a sinkhole, which had been filled overnight, reopened early Tuesday.


TAMPA — After reopening the intersection of Fletcher and Nebraska avenues overnight, officials were forced to close the roadway again Tuesday morning when a sinkhole and dip in the road reopened.

Repair crews Monday night filled the 6-feet wide and 8-feet deep sinkhole, which the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said appeared Monday afternoon.

But early Tuesday, officials said, sections of the intersection had been closed once more because the sinkhole reopened.

Florida Department of Transportation officials warned the repairs would not be complete, and the streets would not reopen, until after Tuesday evening's rush hour.

All eastbound lanes of Fletcher, southbound lanes of Nebraska and the northbound exit ramp off Interstate 275 were completely closed Tuesday.

Northbound Nebraska Avenue was reduced to one lane.

Westbound Fletcher Avenue was unaffected.

Repair workers and deputies responded to the scene just after 5 a.m.

Motorists were advised to take alternate routes to avoid the area.

Sinkhole problem turns serious

As work crews continued to investigate a sinkhole beneath Paseo del Mar in San Pedro, it appeared there would be no quick or easy fix in the cliffside neighborhood known for land movement.

Engineers this week are busy making plans to relocate power poles - "in case something more drastic would occur," said Lawrence Cuaresma, district engineer with the city of Los Angeles Public Works Department.

Engineers at this point do not know what is causing the sinkhole, he said.

"I hate to speculate, we don't know if it's local or part of a wider, larger event."

Geotechnical experts from both Los Angeles city and county are assessing the area and will make recommendations, he said.

County Department of Beaches and Harbors reported finding additional cracks in the pedestrian walkway near the street south of the baseball diamond used by Mary Star of the Sea High School.

Access to part of the beach below was closed due to a "potential landslide."

Meanwhile, a 900-foot-long stretch of Paseo del Mar - between Weymouth Avenue to just east of Western Avenue - will remain closed indefinitely, he said.

The street was blocked on Sept. 19 after engineers determined that a sinkhole had developed beneath a bowl-like depression in the road that had been slowly developing since early July.

Using tape measures and instruments, surveyors determined that the hole beneath where the road buckled was 2 feet long and 3

feet wide. The hole appeared to be expanding.

Since then, crews have discovered cracks also in the land at the White Point Nature Preserve that is bordered by Paseo del Mar.

Sidewalks also have developed cracks on the south side of the roadway, and there has been some separation of the curb and the gutter, Cuaresma said. There also was some movement on an access road, now closed, that leads down the cliff to the beach.

Policemen standing guard beside the sinkhole in Jalan TK 5/1, Taman Kinrara, Puchong, last night.
SUBANG JAYA: A portion of the road leading to houses and shoplots in Section 5, Taman Kinrara, off Batu 9, Jalan Puchong, collapsed yesterday, leaving a six-metre deep and 4.5-metre wide sinkhole.

The incident happened at 2pm. The earth in the middle of the road suddenly caved in, leaving a hole deep enough to fit four cars.

Luckily, no road users fell into the hole, located near several apartments,

Serdang police chief Superintendent Abdul Razak Elias said police were notified about the sinkhole at Jalan TK 5/1 by residents, before several officers cordoned off the area.

"We decided to close the road pending investigations and repair works by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council."

A check at the scene showed policemen and officers from municipal council inspecting the sinkhole.

They said the problem was most probably caused by underground waterways.

NYC repair crews ignoring sinkholes, 'Red Tape Report' finds

Published: Monday, September 26, 2011, 3:55 PM     Updated: Monday, September 26, 2011, 4:01 PM
SINKHOLE.jpgSinkholes plague Remsen Street at Evergreen Avenue, Dongan Hills, in this June 9 file photo.  

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- City repair crews are ignoring potentially dangerous sinkholes because callers to 311 are referring to them as potholes, according to a Red Tape Report released today by Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.

Existing procedures forward a 311 pothole complaint to the Department of Transportation, which dispatches an inspector, the report said.

But when the inspector discovers the damage is from a sinkhole, rather than a pothole, the case is dropped instead of being forwarded to the city Department of Environmental Protection, the agency that handles sinkholes.

A constituent only learns the case has been dropped if they call 311 again to check on the status of their complaint. The caller must then open a second case to refer the problem to DEP.

"This is a classic example of one hand of government not working with the other," de Blasio said.

"This bureaucracy is wasting taxpayer dollars. Agencies should forward these requests and inspection reports automatically and immediately respond to each other to get repairs made as quickly as possible."

Sewer repairs at Third and Wooster delayed until Thursday night

Last Modified: Monday, September 26, 2011 at 2:40 p.m.

The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has delayed sewer repairs at the intersection of Third and Wooster streets.

Work will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday. The repairs are needed because of a collapsed pipe, which is causing a sinkhole.

Northbound traffic will be forced to turn right at Dawson Street and detoured to Fifth Avenue to Castle Street. Wooster Street will be closed east of the Third Street intersection. The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge will also be closed while repairs are made.

The work is expected to be finished by Friday morning.
