Cracks and Sinkings by the Hydro Tunnels

Uttarakhand Center

 Cracks in the walls by the blasting for tunnel construction.
In fact it is dangerous to live in houses with such big cracks. But still people live there ...

 … because the official 'resettlement' houses are very poor. Like this one in Chain village.

 When there is a earthquake villages undermined by tunnels will be very vulnerable.

 Also roads are heavy affected by sinkings.

 Even a electricity pylon broke down.
