Ground Opens Up in Wyoming


From: http://www.iflscience.com/environment/enormous-crack-suddenly-appears-mountain-range-near-yellowstone

"A gigantic crack has appeared in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains in northern Wyoming. This crack isn’t just a few meters wide, mind you: it has opened up a gap 685 meters (2,250 feet) long and 45 meters (150 feet) wide. The locals are somewhat unfortunately nicknaming it the “gash”, as reported by the Huffington Post. Sudden tectonic movements in Earth’s crust causes earthquakes, which displace large amounts of material in very short periods of time, often producing large fractures at the surface level. Mysteriously, no seismic activity of any kind was reported in the area, meaning that this miniature canyon was formed through other means."

Wowsers.

There has always being theorization that the eruption that could come from that area would covers the earth in darkness.

Kind of scary when you think about what we are sitting on top of.

I saw an episode of Panorama from the British channel BBC about this. I think they referred to it as a Super Volcano, which would, as you say, blanket the planet in dust.

Merry Christmas everybody!

That was on my local news.
It has nothing to do with YELLOESTONE PARK, It is about 200 or so miles east of the park.

It is a natural occurrence caused by a wetter than usual winter and last spring.

It is similar to a mudslide in California, just a lot slower.

Oh and it is about 100 miles or so north of me.
