A Threat At The Back Lane
IPOH :The formation of a shoe sized hole revealing almost 3 feet depth of 'hollowness' underneath sends chills to Lew, who witnessed it while the gas delivery man ride on her house's back lane.
The teacher in her 40s was looking on the gas delivery man after paying him for the gas when the shocking incident happened in front of her.
It was known that most area within the Kinta Valley are lands of former tin mines, thus resulting in a large number of houses on landfills.
It is believed that the continual rains that occur recently has resulted in such incident.
Cracks were also seen on some of the walls in some of the houses.
According to Lew, she has no plan of moving but would look for some sand and stones to fill the hole.
