A giant crack measuring more than 2 kilometers long opened in the desertic ground of Jiménez, Mexico.
The deep fissure has been discovered on September 15, 2020 by local residents.
The 2-km-long crack starts as a small fissure on the side of a remote road (road to Las Adargas, approximately 13 km from the highway).
Then it widens, grows, reaching in certain places up to 1.5 meters wide and up to 3 meters deep.
