Giant Earth crack opens up in Northern Cape, South Africa

A giant earth crack has been spotted in Northern Cape along the R31 between Daniëlskuil and Kuruman in South Africa.

The road has been closed down. According to residents, the fissure is getting worse and expanding every single minutes!

Officials call this a sinkhole. I describe it as a massive fissure in the ground!
