July 4, 2006


Digital shots of a mine subsidence on Dillon Street in the Miners Mills section of Wilkes-Barre. The cave-in has claimed the road, the sidewalk, curb and sucked in a fence. A pool on the other side of the fence was drained according to the Times-Leader in an attempt to save it. Also there holes opened up in backyards along Austin Ave and Central Lane. The Austin Ave/Gardener Ave area is where massive cave-ins occured after Hurricane Agnes in 1972.
