Getting a glimpse of what's under Tombstone streets

Posted: Updated:
TOMBSTONE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Efforts continue in Tombstone today to find sinkholes uncovered from our recent monsoon storms.

Friday crews used ground penetrating radar to image old mine shafts that lie beneath the town. Recent storms revived a long running problem with sinkholes.

With these images they now have to decide what to do next.

They could permanently fill the shafts, which could be costly.

They could also keep putting dirt and pavement on top of the sunken areas or close the streets and make them walking malls.
