Long Beach Rising Again

New, 1 comment

Long Beach is rising up and no one seems to really know why. In the past, the city has sunk because of oil extraction, but now parts of the Harbor District have risen "up to 1.1 inches" from November 2010 to October 11 and "The Central City district and Grissom Island - an artificial island off Long Beach Harbor - grew by as much as .8 inches" in that time. The Long Beach Press-Telegram reports that "Experts say the changes today appear random and aren't well understood." [LBPT]
