Homebuyers in the Valley are getting some help in locating areas where fissures are a problem.

Fissures are cracks in the ground that can cause structural damage.

The Arizona Geological Survey has completed detailed maps of two areas that have lots of fissures.

The new maps of Chandler Heights near Queen Creek and Apache Junction are the first step in AGZS' effort to map fissures statewide.

The project was mandated by 2006 legislation that came in response to homeowners concerned about fissures.

There are 20 more Arizona areas to map.
