"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."

Omega Homes begins filling Forks Township neighborhood's sinkholes

Published: Saturday, October 08, 2011
sinkhole.JPGView full sizeSinkholes have been plaguing homeowners in the Penn Ridge development in Forks Township.  

About a dozen sinkholes in Penn’s Ridge have been filled.

Peg Dissinger, of Allentown-based developer Omega Homes, said sinkholes remain on three properties. One homeowner refused to sign a waiver, one signed a waiver on Friday and a third had a power outage when crews arrived.

Homeowners last month crowded a supervisors meeting and asked for help with the sinkholes, some estimated at 23 feet deep. Dissinger said the developer was not legally responsible to fix the...

Supervisor C. David Howell said he’ll see if Forks Township could impose some type of safety regulations on the property owner who refused to sign the waiver.

"The hole does pose a risk or danger to neighbors or children playing in the general area," Howell said.

Dissinger believed a "perfect storm" this summer of a drought, earthquake, a hurricane and tropical storm opened the holes. She said the Lehigh Valley is prone to sinkholes due to an abundance of porous limestone.

Sinkhole closes road in University City

The sinkhole near the corner of Campus Point Court and Campus Point Drive. —

— A University City road near Genesee Avenue and Interstate 5 remained blocked off Thursday afternoon because of a large sinkhole, and authorities had no estimate on when it would reopen.

The collapsed roadway on Campus Point Drive at Campus Point Court was reported at 7:22 a.m., San Diego police said.

University City sinkhole


An underground sewer line running parallel to water and storm water pipelines was damaged and leaking, said Arian Collins, spokesman for the city water department.

Collins said it wasn’t clear if the sewer line cracked, swept away dirt and caused the sinkhole, or if the pavement and soil caved in first, damaging the sewer pipe.

The roadway will be closed until further notice. City crews installed a six-inch pipe in order to pass sewage around the broken pipe, Collins said.

The water main serving 30 businesses was shut off as a precaution, in case further cave-ins or workers might damage the line, Collins said. He said temporary pipes are being installed above ground, and by later in the night, the businesses would have a water supply again.

“We’ll keep the temporary pipes in place until we can turn on the water main again,” Collins said.

He said a green dye was put into the sewer system to detect any leaks, and a little later, green water was found pooling inside the sinkhole.

The hole was 15 to 20 feet wide and about eight feet deep at first, police said. Later in the morning it appeared almost double in size.

Shannon Rainey, who works at Qualcomm on Campus Point Court, said that several people in the business district were 30 to 40 minutes late to work because of to the road closure. Traffic was diverted through an SAIC parking lot, Rainey said.

Water to the SAIC building on Campus Point Drive was shut off and the company was being evacuated in stages starting at about 1 p.m., SAIC employee Matthew Howe said.

Company officials said the situation was not an emergency, but it advised its employees to use caution.

My Vauxhole!

LOOKS like the pot holes are getting a lot bigger these days — as a car is swallowed up in a gaping 5ft deep water-filled chasm by the side of the road.

It was formed after a large water pipe burst and caused the tarmac around it to collapse.

The driver had stopped after hearing a loud noise, got out and watched her Vauxhall Meriva fall into the hole close to the McLaren HQ near Woking, Surrey.

Gordon Foat, who lives nearby, said: "The road's had it." Now they'll just have to dig the hole lot up...


Men hole ... cops and workmen check car

Sinkhole a money pit for Ross Township residents

Private road costs $75,000 to fix

Several neighbors in Ross Township, PA have a problem.

A very big problem.


The rain from two tropical storms caused a giant sinkhole to open up at the base of the only road that leads to their homes, which are at the top of a hill.

The road, Leisure Court, is private, which complicates matters because townships are not responsible for repairing private roads. Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is offering aid to people who have property that was damaged in the tropical storms, recently inspected the sinkhole and said they'd probably be able to help pay for repairs. But the amount of cash that FEMA thinks it will be able to offer may only represent a fraction of what the entire project will cost.

And with winter coming, and no available road for the delivery of propane tanks, the neighbors are starting to get worried.

"We're at our wits' end. Someone's got to do something," said Loralee Quinlan, one of the six homeowners affected by the decimated road.

The sinkhole is about 15 feet deep and looks like a massive crater.

The neighbors think the street collapsed

That sinking feeling: Car left stranded in giant pothole after burst water main causes road to collapse

Many motorists have had their tyres and wheels damaged by a pothole.

But one driver got more than she bargained for when the road gave way beneath her and swallowed up her entire car.

The incident took place this morning after a water main burst on the A320 between Woking and Chertsey in Surrey. The large pipe erupted at about 5am, flooding the busy road.

A female motorist driving a silver hatchback had stopped her car after hearing a loud noise coming from the road.

In a matter of seconds, the road then gave way and swallowed her car up.


Police were called to the scene shortly afterwards and the road was then closed at around 7am.

The water was turned off by 8.30am, but the road remained shut on Wednesday lunchtime because of the substantial hole in the southbound carriageway.

'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.
