TUCSON: The Arizona Geological Survey has discovered a new growing crack in Pinal County.
The Geological Survey announced late January that they found the fissure, which they explored with drone video . The fissure is located just 25 miles south of Arizona City between Casa Grande and Tucson.
The fissure is believed to have formed between March 2013 and December 2014. It is more than half a mile longer than other fissures in the area at just over 2 miles in total wide.
While Fissures are fairly common in central Arizona, this one continues to grow and will be closely monitored by The Arizona Geological Survey.
We spoke with Chief of The Arizona Geological Survey, Francis Michael Conway about the growing gape!
