The Earth Splits in Kenya's Rift Valley

National Geographic posted on 2 April 2018 an article titled "Why This Giant Crack Opened Up in Kenya" by Sarah Gibbens.

It describes the rapid development of a split in the earth in Kenya's Great Rift Valley caused by the movement away from each other of two tectonic plates, the Somali plate in the east and the Nubian plate in the west. It includes a short video of this recent event.
