Large Earth crack threatens 6 families in Bocas del Toro, Panama


At least six houses are threatened by a large crack that appeared in the village of Almirante in the province of Bocas del Toro, Panama.

The crack, first reported on June 11th, was only 3 feet deep. On Wednesday June 15th, the fissure was already six feet deep and still growing!

In total, the crack threatens 6 houses – or 35 people – who have to be relocated in safety.

One of the families threatened by this large fissure has already been evacuated as the ground under its house may collapse.

The Ministry of Housing and Land Management of Panama has already announced that new homes will be built for the six families affected by this growing crack in the ground.

Here a link to a video in Spanish.
