Intense storms cause sinkholes to form in Santa Cruz, California
The stormy weather brought huge tides to Santa Cruz County in California over the last three months, causing two sections of the coast to crush. Some of the swells that hit the coastline last week were between 2.7 and 4.6 m (9 and 15 foot) high, according to media.
“The two areas that are impacting the path right now have a combined length of 60 feet or so and both of them are a rock shelve that’s probably 3.6 to 4.6 m (12 to 15 feet) below the level of the path, so that gives you some idea, so we put together the bid in cubic yards, so it’s about 170 cubic yards (130 cubic m) of the larger stone,” said Joshua Spangrud, the city of Santa Cruz civil engineer.
