A huge hole more than 80 meters in diameter has been opened in a field near Santa Maria Zacatepec, Mexico. It continues to expand and risks swallowing a nearby house
A water-filled cavity mysteriously formed in a field near the city of Santa Maria Zacatepec, or Mexico. According to the information you provided New York Post, the owners of the field had discovered this formation after hearing a thunderous noise on Saturday, May 29 at about 6 am. It continues to grow: the chasm now extends to more than 80 metres, having measured 5 meters at the time of its discovery.
The chasm can widen
The authorities called on the population not to approach this abyss. A neighboring house was evacuated. Experts said that this phenomenon may be due to the “softening of agricultural land.” The fields in which this geological phenomenon occurs were established on ‘jagoi’, which are covered water-filled trenches agricultural purposes. The Mexican Civil Protection said the crater could get wider because the ground “is in direct contact with water it loses its strength and can easily erode.”
