Yes - it doesn't have the loadbearing capacity of other 'soils'.

Typically you'll have to have your concrete be more able to bear the
overturning and other forces which means you should have an engineer design
the base for you. You can find a Volunteer Consulting Engineer (VCE) for your
state at the ARRL website. Or buy one of your engineering-type buddies a case
of beer to run the calcs.
