Buffalo, NY – Soil problems have been blamed for severe damage to about 200 homes in affluent subdivisions of Amherst. But geology experts and one town official say the problem may be at least partly human interference.
Amherst Town councilmember Bill Kindel says the calls and complaints keep coming. Amherst Town officials are scrambling to answer the concerns now of about two hundred homeowners who say their houses are falling apart. And he says that could mean damages in the millions. But safety may be an even bigger concern.
