Wor­ried neigh­bours seek an­swers about sink­hole

Truro Daily News - - PROVINCE -

FAL­MOUTH — Peo­ple liv­ing near a Nova Sco­tia home be­ing swal­lowed by a large sink­hole say they want an­swers on why the ground opened up — and whether other houses might be at risk.

Debby Rose says about 40 peo­ple gath­ered at her home in Fal­mouth on Wednesday night to share in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent Sun­day that saw her neigh­bour’s large brick home sink into the ground.

Rose, who lives right be­side the sink­ing house, says a mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cial also at­tended the in­for­mal meeting and as­sured the group they will be given the re­sults of a re­port be­ing done by a geotech­ni­cal en­gi­neer.
