Amazing drone footage reveals massive miles-long fracture in Africa that could rip the continent in TWO

ASTONISHING video shows the substantial crack which is threatening to divide the entire continent of Africa in TWO.The huge crevice in Kenya determines 50ft deep and 20 metres wide and has ruined part of the Nairobi-Narok highway.

The big fracture in Kenya threatens to tear Africa in two

The aerial clip shows cars moving past the huge canyon which could enable ocean water to flood in if it continues to grow over the next 10 million years.Dr Lucia Perez

Diaz, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Fault Characteristics Research Study Group, London’s Royal Holloway, discussed how this continental rupture might occur.Writing for The

Discussion she said:”The East African Rift Valley stretches over 3,000 km from the Gulf of Aden in the north towards Zimbabwe in the south, splitting the African plate into two unequal parts: the Somali and Nubian plates. The huge crevice is 50ft in locations and continues to grow Cars move past the crack in impressive drone footage The giant fracture has actually collapsed part of the

Nairobi-Narok highway in Kenya The active rift zone is presently spreading out at a couple of millimetres annually” Activity along the eastern branch of the rift valley, running along Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, became obvious when the big crack all of a sudden appeared in south-western Kenya. “The process is called “continental rifting”and requires huge forces to be put in on the Earth.Underneath the crust a”lava plume”forms forcing the crust up and ultimately splitting it.Dr Diaz added:”Ultimately, over a period of 10s of millions of years, seafloor spreading will progress along the whole length of the rift.LONDON BLOODBATH GOES ON Man stabbed to death hours after man
