Mexico has a huge crack problem. Seriously, look at it…that is a huge crack!
The 26 feet-deep crack stretches for over half a mile in a farmland area of northwest Mexico. The crack was first seen last week. It has disconnected Highway 26 between Hermosillo and the coast.
A drone was used to capture video:
The Independent reports on what may have caused the crack:
The civil protection unit believes the fissure may have been caused by an earthquake which hit last Sunday. But another investigation by geologists at the University of Sonora found that farmers in the area had built up a levee stream to contain rainwater which had begun to leak.
Experts believe that this may have caused an underground stream to develop, which soften the earth above it until it collapsed.
