A gigantic crack in Earth’s crust appeared in Kenya, in the area of the Great African Rift. It stretches over several kilometers and continues to widen and deepen.

Several families had to be evacuated and a portion of an intensely circulated highway collapsed.

Kenyan geologists who rushed to the spot say the phenomenon is caused by volcanic activity and amplified by the rain while other geologists say it is caused by earth crust displacements.

The split in the ground emerged in Rift Valley, a region of rifts and tectonic faults stretching over 6000 km in length, from Syria to Mozambique.
