Likely Earth fissure continues to grow in Cochise County

The possible Earth fissures on Van Ness Rd in Cochise County have grown dramatically since the beginning of the month. AZGS geologist Mike Mahan reports that the west segment extended 183 feet between August 5 and August 19. The east segment extended a further 239 feet.

Local residents are in a debate with the county over who is responsible for maintaining and repairing the road. Some residents brought out heavy equipment and filled in much of the rift, but subsequent rains appear to have washed the fill into deeper stretches, leaving the road pretty much as it was before.

    If you REALLY want to know what is happening here, check out this Newsletter at

    The earth's plates are moving. Check out their other newsletters to see pictures from around the world, as the plates spread apart -- or dive under one another -- or get jammed together. I saw a picture of a huge crack in Egypt, and others around the world, with sinkholes happening as well -- even in someone's bedroom.
