New earth fissures found in Cochise County

Previously unmapped earth fissures from the Sulphur Hills area near Willcox in Cochise County of southern Arizona were reported to AZGS last week. Geologist Mike Mahon has been in the field documenting them and shared these photos. The bottom one shows a well casing pushed above the surface presumably due to subsidence of the surrounding ground.

Cochise County erected the warning sign where fissures intersect roads.
