Don’t move! Vibrations attract them!
Also – I didn’t know Burt Ward lived in Rostraver.

Oh, Tremors. How I love thee.

just one of those fun things western PA homeowners have to worry about.. mine subsidence. That picture is very scary.. it looks like something out of a movie.

Tremors was such a fun movie

I saw this same family on the news blaming a sewer / water crew that was installing a new pipe for this foundation damage. I guess it was something else.

I can’t believe that this is still going on. I remember when I was in high school nearly 20 years ago (good God I’m getting old) and things started sinking. Scary stuff.

Well done, PG. Tremors. And a check of that wiki link shows there were FOUR movies? Wow. For me theres only one, and its the original.
“What kind of fuse is that?”
“What do you use it for?”
Good times, good times. Thank you for that trip down EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO. Wow, we’re all old bastards.

The real crime in it all is the mining companies do not backfill the abandoned mines and the State and the Feds do not hold the companies responsible.
Nobody much gives a crap either, until their house falls apart.

it figures the family would blame the sewer/water crew. suddenly they were geotechnical engineers? the daughter tested the moisture content while the mom got out her calculate and determined the angle of internal friction.
the mining companies werent required by law to backfill the abandoned mines. the government of westmoreland county should create a special ordinance for development on top of abandoned mines, if they do not have that in place already. but then again, that would be asking a SW PA governmental body to actually be proactive.
i dont care, anyway, its not in pittsburgh, let alone allegheny county.
