Soil tests resume on earthquake-devastated lands

Researchers have returned to continue soil tests on earthquake devastated lands in Los Iros with the hope of finding out why land formations occurred following the 6.9 magnitude earthquake last August.

The tests are being done at Los Iros near the bubbling Erin Bouff mud volcanoes on the southern coasts which have been oozing liquid mud. 

The slurries from the Anglais Point Mud Volcano at Lorensotte have reached down to the sea.
