A River Disappears

A river went underground in one Arizona town as a huge fissure opened up in another. The Santa Cruz River rose so high that it covered Interstate highway 19 in places. Cars couldn't get through. Then three days later, the water disappeared, leaving nothing behind but a few dead fish. The river had vanished.

In what is possibly a related event, a giant crack opened up in the ground nearby. The fissure is about a mile and a half long and as deep as 25 feet in some places. Residents in the area say the fissure has always been there, but with every storm, it keeps getting deeper. It's close to a residential neighborhood, but so far no homes have fallen into it.
