ENSENADA.- A private property to kilometer 91 of the Scenic Road “is beginning to show symptoms, fractures that point to a potential slip” that can be accelerated by an earthquake, heavy rain or own passing vehicles.Technically is “evidence that is already in process a movement like Kilometer 93”, so it should be given “priority attention” reported Dr. Luis Humberto Mendoza Garcilazo, researcher at the Department of Seismology, Science division Cicese Earth.

The new evidence with which researchers have since July shows that the site has a favorable geometry for a mass movement, with a crescent moon and from the beach. “If this is eight meters below the highway migrates to the highway, the top, we’re in trouble,” he said Mendoza Garcilazo.

On 28 December 2013 a stretch of road Scenic fell at kilometer 93, so the road was closed for a year.
