The Nikola P. Prokopovich Papers on Land Subsidence

Article from the Fresno Bee -- El Porvenir: Dream of a Pleasant Community Fades

"Several homes are already cracking and tilting because of severe land subsidence...One home, built only three years ago, has large cracks in the master bedroom, kitchen, living room, and hall. The crack in the bedroom is an inch wide and goes across the ceiling and down one wall, exposing insulation."

Fresno Bee, January 28, 1973. Page C1.
