Earth Changes: Giant earth crack discovered in the Arizona desert
A massive, two-mile-long, earth fissure in the desert landscape was just charted by the Arizona Geological Survey.
This fissure formed between March 2013 and December 2014. This one is more than half a mile longer than other fissures in the area. The fissure may have grown because of the heavy rains in fall of 2014.
After South Africa, a new massive fissure was discovered in Arizona.
But the latest discovery, featured above in the video, is more than half a mile longer than other fissures in the area.
The fissure is about 25 miles south of Arizona City, just south of Aries Drive near Sunland Gin Road.
It was the first time the AZGS used a drone to examine a fissure.
Fissures pose a threat to people off-roading and riding ATVs in the area. Roaming livestock can also fall in and get stuck. Standing near the edge of a fissure can be dangerous because it can suddenly cave in.
