According to the first investigations, the large doline was caused by a geological fault – fracture or zone of fractures between two blocks of rock.

Officials describe the hole in the ground as “a matter of enormous risk.

The crater began forming last Saturday. Being then no more than 5 meters (16 feet) in diameter, it grew to a freaking 60 meters (197 feet) in 24 hours. Now it is measuring a whopping 100 meters (328 feet) and still expanding…

It is still unknown what fracturated the soil. Since heavy agriculture is taking place in this rural area near Puebla, the fissure may have been triggered by water extraction.

Meanwhile, a 500-meter (1640 feet) security fence has been installed around the sinkhole to prevent any death and injuries.

Just three days before, on May 26th, a huge crack completely destroyed a 150-meter long portion of the Siglo XXI Highway near the town of Santa Casilda-Cuatro Caminos.

Both regions are separated by only 300 km (186 miles). The Earth is tearing apart in this part of the globe…

Meanwhile, the giant sinkhole is about 20-meter deep and full of water… A new mysterious cenote has formed! [Infobae, Informador]

  1. Good thing it didn’t happen by the dope and people smuggling tunnels, or somebody could have been injured or killed.
    Maybe we will see some of those in redchinesey land?
