New giant crack measuring more than 400 meters appears in Mexico in pictures and videos


A giant crack measuring more than 400 meters long and 4 meters deep opened up at the border between Tláhuac and Milpa Alta, two of the 16 boroughs of Mexico city, Mexico on May 10, 2018. The day after, the same water main broke up again forming a huge sinkhole, that narrowly swallowed up a nearby house. Officials are investigating if there could be a link between the water main break, these geological events and the strong earthquake of September 19, 2017.

A day after, the same water main broke up again, forming a 10-meter sinkhole that almost swallowed a house a closed down the Tetelco-Tecmitl highway in Tlahuac.

Officials still have to determine if the water main break is linked to the earthquake of September 19. Which is most probably the case!

Officials have to figure out if these geological events (faults and sinkholes) are linked to the massive earthquake that hit near Mexico City on September 19, 2017.

Water supply was cut off for hundreds of residents in both Tláhuac and Milpa Alta boroughs, who now fear for their homes and businesses. Here a last video summary of these two events:

These cracks in the ground and sinkholes are terrifying!
