Scientists have made a disappointing forecast for the future of North America. According to experts, the continent located in the north of the Earth's Western Hemisphere may split in half.

The scientists' assumption is confirmed by photos and videos that have appeared on the Internet. On them you can see how deep dips form on the surface of the Earth. The cracks were spotted by Mexicans on the outskirts of the Chihuahua Desert on September 15. The width of the openings reached 3, and the depth – 1.5 meters. Moreover, the openings stretched for several kilometers. Geologists have already begun to study the anomaly. At the moment, it was possible to establish that a huge crack originates 500 kilometers from the southern edge of the San Andreas fault. Where the gap stretches has not yet been established. Scientists continue to study the crack. If the rift connects to the Mexican desert, it means that San Andreas could trigger an earthquake that would split the mainland.
Scientists are also considering a version that the cause of the openings was tremors in the Atlantic, which reached 7 points. This ancient continent is located far from San Andreas, but it may indicate a global process as yet unknown to science, as a result of which such cracks will begin to appear in various places.
In addition, experts do not exclude that tectonic processes are taking place directly under Mexico. After a powerful earthquake last summer, the region has moved 45 centimeters. Scientists believe that because of this, a volcano may wake up, as a result of which North America will split in half.
