It is no secret that all the continents of the Earth are in constant motion: they either gather into one large supercontinent, then they are divided into parts. However, this is happening so slowly that humanity does not notice this movement for several millimeters a year. However, sometimes such processes make you draw attention to yourself.
So near the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, a huge crack formed in the ground. The rift, 15 meters deep, stretched for several kilometers and damaged several highways, frightening local residents.
Experts believe that before that the fault was filled with volcanic ash, which was gradually washed away by rains. Opinions are expressed that the incident may indicate the process of dividing Africa into two continents вЂ” in a few tens of million years, the territory of Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, and Tanzania will separate from the mainland.
