Soil rupture, resulting in early August at the Van Ness Road in Cochise County, has increased significantly, according arizonageology.blogspot.com
A specialist from the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) Mike Mahan says Western cracks increased to 183 feet (56 meters) from 5 to 19 August. Segment in the East increased by 239 feet (73 meters).
Local residents continue discussion with the district administration about who is responsible for the maintenance and repair of roads. Some brought their own heavy equipment and covered most of the fault.
However, subsequent rains seem to have blurred the deeper parts of the crack, causing the road to a large extent become the same as it was before.
