Wow.... that is bizarre! Wonder what could have caused it? No report of earthquake is odd....

It looks like a large creek bed sits along side the jail.

I'm 60 min away and too lazy to investigate this further, but I wonder if it has experienced a water large level change. Google maps shows the water ending right at the jail. Cords are 36.979929, -122.024227 if you want to search that in Google maps.

This is really weird. I have got to find out what caused it.
I wonder if google knows??


If it happened all at once and was not a leak of any sort...no quake...then....hmmmm.... AND SMELLS? Does anyone know what it is said to smell like?? Sulfur??? Too WEIRD!

Steve wasn't the slimmest prisoner but DAMMIT he had dug that tunnel for years!!

Otherwise wtf is going on with this planet??


Seriously, other people didn't see this and immediately think "prisoner escape tunnel"? Did they even check for one?

Where did you see that? (sulphur) That would be scary

I live in Santa Cruz and there are no weird smells, and the nearby river is normal like always. It's an old concrete building it's just settling and buckling. Really everything is fine, its an earthquake prone area buildings here are always settling.

Remember what signs too look for??
I would be keeping an eye on the animals right now.

Wow, that doesn't happen everyday!
They may have to take up the floor
and investigate down below to see
what is going on, I hope they do. This
doesn't look normal to me. Will stay
on top of this.

settling and buckling.

I have photographed a lot of old
buildings and yes they do settle
and buckle, have seen a lot of
damage from it - but this happened
so quickly. A sink hole perhaps or
something else

A drug lords tunnel collapse??? That would be hilarious...drug running tunnel collapses under jail

Sounds like some MAJOR DOOM. We can only hope doomtards... We can only hope.
More than likely, it's some mundane and small scale geological occurrence that will barely cause any casualties. Could be the beginning of a sinkhole for instance.

By far the worst tile job I've ever seen. This is union work?

I just have one word to add to this conversation, but since it has to be two lines:



MICROSEISMS


In seismology, a microseism is defined as a faint earth tremor caused by natural phenomena.[1][2] The term is most commonly used to refer to the dominant background seismic noise signal on Earth, which are mostly composed of Rayleigh waves and caused by water waves in the oceans and lakes.[3][4][5][6] Thus a microseism is a small and long-continuing oscillation of the ground.[7]

Have to ask how this would cause the
shaking and movement of the ground
at the jail. Do the sounds cause quakes
or ground movement?

This happened in a house I lived in when it was about three years old. There was 12" ceramic tile in the kitchen. One evening I noticed it looked like there was a bit of a hump in the kitchen floor, but I thought maybe it was my imagination. I also noticed small hairline cracks in a few tiles and knew I had not dropped anything on them to cause them. Two days later I came home from work and saw the tile buckled down the center of the kitchen from one end to the other. I immediately called the builder. He came the next morning first thing and swore he had never seen anything like it. He had also checked for any leaks or signs of leaks, as I had already done. The only thing he could think was that it was from the house settling and expansion and contraction of the floors (hardwood adjoined the tile). He also said no one at the tile place had ever seen or heard of it either. He did replace the majority if the tile. Four years later it has never occurred again.

But I would be more worried about the fact that this is in California. And although they haven't had any reported quake activity there, it makes me wonder if it isn't related somehow.

It falls under the things that make you go hmm, and the fact that I think there are going to be more stranger and scarier things in store.

I had not thought of the expansion of wood
and tile, that makes sense but like you said
this is in California.

Could be the formation of a sinkhole? Cali is prone to landslides and goo like soil underneath structures. If no quakes were recorded it would be the only thing I could think of...either that or they found where Hoffa's buried....

I don't know the real answer to your question...I am just thinking that IF this oscillation where strong enough, or of the right frequency, we may see the kind of odd damage being reported here. I could also we WAY off base.

But would there not be any other reports of damage or similar occurrences nearby? One would think so. Also does anyone know if it was built in an area with alot of fill dirt or a pit where they buried debris from clearing that land?

Yeah, I am wondering if God got so mad at the union for the crappy work, he decided to create a new, undetectable type of localized earthquake- where only the good work still remains after the shake, rattle and roll.
