"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."

20-foot sinkhole sent coal ash into Lake Norman-area creek, NC investigators say

SEPTEMBER 26, 2020 07:00 AM

https://www.sunherald.com/news/health/article227303784.html


North Carolina environmental officials are investigating the release of sediment containing coal ash from a 20-foot-deep sinkhole beside a major Lake Norman-area road.

The sinkhole re-emerged Sept. 17 in a parking lot outside of a tire and auto-repair shop on N.C. 150 (West Plaza Drive) just east of Interstate 77 in Mooresville.

The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality has known about the sinkhole and has been monitoring it since July 2019, according to a department news release this week announcing the sinkhole reappeared.

“The parking lot is built on a documented coal ash structural fill,” officials said in the release, adding that the property owner previously repaired it in 2018 and 2019.

The sinkhole reopened Sept. 17 after the collapse of a stream culvert pipe under the fill, the department said. The pipe collapsed during heavy rains, officials said.

A department spokeswoman did not respond when The Charlotte Observer requested the owner’s name but did provide the address of the sinkhole property, 190 W. Plaza Drive.

Metal plates covered the sinkhole when an Observer reporter visited the site during a torrential rainstorm Friday. A backhoe and loader sat at the site outside a Tire Masters auto shop.

Shop manager Chris Medford told the Observer in a phone interview that he was complying with all sinkhole safety and repair measures recommended by the state, including placing the metal plates over the hole. He said he would have to consult his attorney before commenting further.

After the Sept. 17 storms, state inspectors saw sediment containing coal ash in the stream bed of an unnamed nearby tributary, according to the Department of Environmental Quality. “DEQ staff collected water quality samples from the stream and is conducting ongoing monitoring,” officials said in the release.

The department also alerted Iredell County and N.C. emergency management officials about the sinkhole, as well as N.C. Department of Transportation officials. The state DOT plans to expand N.C. 150 near the sinkhole eventually, according to the Department of Environmental Quality.

“There is no ongoing release of ash,” department spokeswoman Laura Leonard told the Observer in an email Friday. “It is important to note that what was released was a mixture of soil with dry, compacted ash. The DEQ staff estimated that around 125 cubic yards of material – soil and ash combined – was released based on the size of the sinkhole.”

Repairing the sinkhole “will take time, and DEQ staff are still evaluating the site to determine the specific nature of remediation efforts needed,” Leonard said.

She said placing the four metal plates across the sinkhole was a temporary measure by the property owner.

She said the department “is considering all next steps for the responsibility of this situation. Any decision on the issuance of penalty would be based on the facts of DEQ’s investigation.”

The state has used coal ash structural fill as part of “stable base layers for roads, bridges, airfields and large buildings across the state,” according to the Department of Environmental Quality website.

“Coal ash was widely used because it is considered stronger and easier to work with than other materials,” officials say on the site. “The availability and often low cost of coal ash made the product attractive to developers and landowners, especially during the 1980s and 1990s.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulates coal ash, according to its website, because it contains such contaminants as mercury, cadmium and arsenic that, “without proper management can pollute waterways, ground water, drinking water, and the air.”

Mysterious, deep "blue hole" discovered in Gulf coast

Florida is known for its programs exploring the deep reaches of space, but it's something deep under the sea that's drawing researchers to our state next month.

ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. — Divers and fisherman in Florida's Gulf Coast recently discovered a 425-foot "blue hole" similar to sinkholes on nearby land. The hole has been dubbed the Green Banana. It's located about 155 feet below the water's surface, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Next month, a group of researchers will begin searching the mysterious hole for signs of life. NOAA says there are many underwater sinkholes, springs and caverns scattered across Florida's Gulf continental shelf. It's not clear how many exist or where to find them, but most are believed to host booming populations of a wide variety of plants and animals.

"It was more like word of mouth... these divers would go out and try to find it, and they had plenty of days where they didn't find anything and other days where, 'Eureka! There's a hole!'" Researcher Emily Hall, a staff scientist and program manager at Mote Marine Laboratory, told CBS News.

Fellow program manager at Mote and senior scientist Jay Cutler say he's discovered about 20 holes in the region since he first started looking during dives in the mid-1990s.

"You always want to go down a little bit more. Every square foot it's like, 'I wonder what's down deeper and deeper,'" Culter told CBS News. "It is exciting to get to go to someplace where you're pretty sure no one else has been." 

Mote researchers were part of a team who explored a similar blue hole last year, a 350-foot deep hole known as Amberjack. The team, which included scientists with the Harbor Branch of Florida Atlantic University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the U.S. Geological Society plan to return to the Gulf Coast in August and May 2021 to study Green Banana. The 2019 mission was supported by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research. It marked the most in-depth blue hole investigations ever conducted. After deploying divers and more than 600 pounds of equipment into Amberjack Hole, the team found carbon, nutrients and microscopic life lurking inside. Researchers even found two tooth sawfish -- an endangered species.

Along with looking for new species, researchers hope next month's Green Banana mission could explain how the holes impact the global carbon cycle. Scientists want to see if there's a link between those sinkholes and Florida's groundwater. The team says that could determine whether or not to make the holes protected areas.

More sinkholes develop alongside Mariner East construction in Chester County

Residents are asking the Public Utility Commission to shut down construction.

Sinkholes and land subsidence have developed alongside Sunoco’s Mariner East pipeline construction in West Whiteland Township, Chester County. About half a dozen sinkholes along the pipeline’s path began appearing June 13, close to active pipelines carrying natural gas liquids, a pipeline valve station and a public hiking trail, according to local officials.

The most recent subsidence occurred Friday afternoon, with growing cracks on the busy Route 30, near a sinkhole that had developed last week, according to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

The PUC’s Safety Division of the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement is on-site and conducting an investigation.

“No active pipelines were exposed as a result of the subsidences and engineers from the Safety Division continue to closely monitor the situation,” according to a statement released Friday afternoon by the PUC.

The PUC says it is in contact with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and PennDot.

All of the sinkholes have been filled with cement, according to Township manager Mimi Gleason. Gleason says pipeline builder Energy Transfer, formerly known as Sunoco Logistics, continues to conduct testing and has an employee walking the area around the clock to check for any newly formed sinkholes or subsidence.

The PUC says the company is using ground penetrating radar three times a day near the roadway and the hiking trail to detect any new subsidence.

“The Township is very concerned,” said Gleason. “We’re glad the PUC is requiring additional testing to make sure the infrastructure is safe going forward.”

Gleason says Energy Transfer finished the underground drilling needed to install the pipeline, and reported the drill went through “very hard rock.”

The area around Exton is known for its limestone, or karst, geology, which is soft and porous. The state issued permits for the pipeline in 2017, despite warnings by Department of Environmental Protection employees that the area’s geology could trigger sinkholes.

Gleason says Energy Transfer also discovered a void 30 feet below the surface, which it filled with cement. It’s unclear whether that void existed before construction, or was caused by it, she said. The Township says it is now safe to use the Chester Valley Trail, which had been closed.

The company will continue to use geophysical testing and ground penetrating radar to locate any other voids or sinkholes that could impact the pipelines or nearby roadways, said Gleason.

Township resident Ginny Kerslake says she watched workers use a cement truck to fill one of the sinkholes near Lincoln Highway last Friday, July 10. After the sinkhole was filled and she planned to leave the site, she noticed another sink hole had developed by the nearby the valve station.

“All of a sudden there was a flurry of activity,” said Kerslake. “The cement truck came back and men were using wheel barrows to fill it. I lost count of how many wheel barrows of grout they put in there.”

On Monday, Kerslake noticed workers filling another nearby sinkhole.

Kerslake is a member of a local watch-dog group, Del-Chesco United for Public Safety, which has asked the Public Utility Commission to shut down the operating pipelines and halt construction while it conducts the investigation.

“They really should be shutting it down,” she said.  “It’s almost as if everyone is crossing their fingers.”

It’s not the first time West Whiteland Township is dealing with sinkholes. In early 2018 sinkholes developed on Lisa Drive, leading the PUC to halt construction and the operation of the nearby Mariner East 1 pipeline. At the time the PUC said it could be “catastrophic” if the exposed pipeline leaked and led to an explosion.

Several months later, the PUC determined it was safe to re-open the pipelines, which carry natural gas liquids from the Marcellus Shale fields in western Pennsylvania to an export terminal in Delaware County.

“Sunoco continues to try to rush this export project through without regard for the potential for a disaster in the heart of Exton,” said Eric Friedman of Del-Chesco United. “These sinkholes are an invitation to a catastrophe.”

Friedman says the lives of nearby residents are in danger. The group also asked the county to to file an emergency petition with the PUC.

Natural gas liquids are more dangerous than methane. If NGL pipelines leak, the liquid turns into a gas once it is exposed to air. The gas is heavier than air and sinks to the ground, making it highly volatile and risking an explosion.

Energy Transfer did not respond to several requests for comment.

Huge sinkhole appears in Walsall road

The hole opened up in Stafford Street where part of the road had been seen to be gradually sinking in recent days at the junction with Proffitt Street.
The road has been closed and Severn Trent is investigating whether a collapsed sewer caused the road to give way.
The hole is directly outside Tyre City, which had only reopened on Monday due to coronavirus and has now had to close for up to two weeks again. 

Manager Sean Dickenson said he could see the ground sinking and ran into the road to stop an oncoming Transit van which had to swerve out of the way before the hole opened up.
He explained: "We opened up on Monday and noticed there was a dip in the road. The cars were bouncing.
"Day by day it's been getting worse then this morning we were sitting here and could see the road sinking.
"Then the council came and put some signs up saying slow down.
"We were watching the road dip and all of a sudden a Transit van drown down and I had to run and stop it before the road caved in.
"He had to swerve on the pavement."  story continues...

Sinkhole closes LaFayette Hwy bridge 'indefinitely'
Apr 8, 2020

Drivers using LaFayette Highway to travel between Main Street and Highway 431 in Roanoke will have to find an alternate route for the foreseeable future.
The city of Roanoke closed LaFayette Highway Friday night at the bridge that spans the railroad tracks due to a large hole that had opened up at the seam between the asphalt pavement and the bridge on the north end.
The ground underneath the pavement eroded leaving a small chasm that eventually caused the pavement to collapse.

That left a gap of about a foot and a half between the edge of the bridge and the other end of the hole. The hole was about 3 feet wide and swallowed up the double stripe in the middle of that portion of the road.
The hole was first reported by a Roanoke resident on the resident's Facebook page Friday, and by Friday night the city had closed the road at the bridge.

The city is responsible for the repairs. ALDOT inspected the damage Monday along with city officials to determine the nature of the repairs needed.
But before work can proceed, the city will have to accept bids, open them and select a contractor. Those are all steps that must be taken during official city council meetings, a process complicated by the fact that the council has no scheduled meetings in April due to statewide coronavirus related limitations on gatherings.
That means it could be months before the road is reopened to thru traffic.
"The road is going to be closed indefinitely until we can get everyone together and start the process," said Roanoke city clerk Patricia Truitt.
The city placed temporary barricades on either end of the bridge, and by Monday afternoon those were augmented by a dump truck on one end and a backhoe on the other

Sinkhole causes detour near Laporte
A beaver dam, spring runoff and missing riprap may be contributing causes.
Mar 12th 2020

Hubbard County Highway Department workers set up barricades Monday after a sinkhole collapsed a lane of County 93 southwest of Laporte

A roughly car-sized sinkhole opened Monday on County 93 in Lakeport Township.
According to the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office, a section of roadway collapsed at one end of a bridge a half-mile east of State Hwy. 64, approximately 2.5 miles southwest of Laporte. The collapse left a large sinkhole in a lane of traffic, making the road impassible.
Detour signs were posted overnight, and the road reopened after temporary repairs during the week.
“The issue on (County) 93 was created by the flow of the Kabekona River being able to undermine the roadway as it gained access underneath the abutment,” County Public Works Coordinator Jed Nordin said in a written statement. “The protection for the bridge on the waterside, primarily the riprap, had been moved away from the abutment, allowing the undermining to occur.”
Nordin said he could not explain how or why the riprap was removed

“A beaver dam that spanned the full width of the waterway also assisted with the problem by diverting water directly towards the abutment, creating a swirling effect that was able to pull material from beneath the roadway,” he said. “Once there was enough material removed, the strength of the pavement was not enough to stand.”
An alert area resident discovered the hole and contacted the sheriff’s office, Nordin said. Deputies, Minnesota State Troopers and the Lakeport Fire Department responded quickly to divert traffic away from the damage until the county highway personnel set up barriers to close the road for the night.
“Thanks to a great cooperative effort of the emergency crews and Hubbard County staff, there were no injuries to report,” said Nordin. “Temporary repairs have since been made so that the roadway is safely open to traffic. Paving will take place later this spring once construction crews start up for the season.”

Vancouver restaurant remains closed after parking lot caves in

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW733VVPWg4&feature=emb_logo


Fortunately there were no casualties...besides a few aluminum pots that tumbled into the hole

rainfall on Friday, Jan. 31, causing a section of the restaurant’s parking lot to cave in and slide into the neighbouring excavation pit. Storm water and gas connections to the building were compromised, but there were no casualties, besides a few aluminum pots that tumbled into the hole.
A resident of the neighbourhood captured the wall's collapse on video, which can be seen below:


WorkSafe BC has issued a stop work order for the construction site at 138 East Eighth Ave., which was currently being developed into a six-storey condo complex. According to Neal Wells, communications manager for the city, a geotechnical engineer made an assessment of the site over the weekend and determined there was no risk to the surrounding buildings.
The contractor has pumped out the excess water from the pit, and work to rebuild the retaining wall is due to begin on Tuesday morning. Drivers should anticipate potential traffic delays on East Eighth as crews clean up the site. A recorded message for the Congee Noodle House says that the restaurant is closed until further notice, due to a sinkhole. The exact cause of the retaining wall collapse is yet to be determined.
