Huge Crack Opens Up In Blair County, Pennsylvania
We have been following new developments on a large crack in the hillside behind a couple of stores in the Logan Town Centre in Blair County.
The crack is smaller at its beginning near Ashley Home Furniture and then moves up the side of the mountain toward Ross clothing store.
A few weeks ago, it looked to be about a foot wide. As of Thursday, it’s grown to about ten feet wide. A surveyor from the EADS group was on the mountain and said they first measured it to be 15 feet deep.
He said they’ve been out two times each week to survey the fault and get an idea of how the ground is shifting.

This video is unrelated but I thought I would throw it in, I thought is was cool they got it as it started happening.
A large sinkhole has appeared on a street in California causing the roadway to collapse.
Video of the incident was posted online by the City of Madera Police.
“A large portion of the roadway on Schnoor Avenue, north of Howard Avenue and south of 5th Street, has collapsed.”
“The street fell into the sewage line. So far about 12 ft. by 15 ft. section of roadway has collapsed, and it is approximately 15 to 20 feet deep.”
The cause was said to be likely the result of very heavy rainfall.
