This morning I noticed that some new cracks appeared in the basketball court in back of my mother's house. The court is just off of State Street, McDowell St is parallel, and our home and yard and a dog yard are in the bottom land between the higher up State Street and the elevated McDowell St. Many times I have looked at our back yard and thought, well we are very low down, I wonder if a sink hole could be possible? Now on the Virginia side, nearby, there is a rock wall that has fallen to pieces rather suddenly and is actually blockading a small alley near the East Hill Cemetery. Our house is cinder brick and has some cracks in the brick. But I am not worried about cosmetic cracks, just major issues like sinkhole potential.

Do you think there is reason for concern?
