Sinking land in the Central Valley is threatening roads, homes and other infrastructure, and reduces the amount of water some aquifers can hold."

This event looks very similar to the 22 school girls who just hallucinated and twitched and foamed at the mouth in Colombia, mentioned in the 2016-07-11 update. I guess we'll have to wait the standard 'several weeks' for toxicology results for all of these people, assuming they do such tests (very unlikely), and even then we'd have to believe what we're told by the very people who are hiding the truth, which obviously wouldn't be too wise...
