SINKHOLE WARNING-OLD MINE
Authorities warn of possible sinkholes above abandoned limestone mine in eastern Ohio

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 11:18 AM EDT
ZANESVILLE, Ohio


County and state officials have issued a warning about possible sinkholes developing above an abandoned limestone mine in eastern Ohio and are asking the public to avoid the area.

The Muskingum County Emergency Management Agency and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources recommend that the public stay away from the area of the former Columbia Cement mine in Muskingum County southwest of Zanesville.

County EMA Director Bo Keck says the state has investigated the area and found it to be unsafe. Keck says there was a sinkhole in March and more are possible.

Keck says four-wheelers and hunters are being told to stay off the property and two land owners in the area were informed.

State and local officials say they will continue to investigate and develop a safety plan.
