Gods may be angry over the removal of the fountain to make room for more fake events.
Eric Abma, Asilomar superintendent with the Monterey State Historic Park office, said: “We’re investigating the cause but we’re not entirely sure – it’s possible that there’s a water leak under there.”
While the cracks were initially noticed on Sunday when the Monterey History Fest vendors were set up, Abma said they’re not the first crevices to appear there.
“We’ve had other cracks down there,” said Abma. “They’re not entirely new but definitely more significant on Sunday then we’ve seen before.”
