LiquefactionAt the rear of A. Boyd's residence at Port Kenyon a large field bordering the Salt River was spread open in many places, several acres of the land settling a couple of feet. From its appearance, it would appear that water spurted in large quantities from the ground.
All along the Salt River, on either side, but more especially on the south side, fissures can be noticed, and in some instances of several feet in width, and we are told by those who have tried probing the gaps that they appear to be practically bottomless.
