It's Finally Happening! Africa Is Splitting Into Two ContinentsSep 11, 2023
Kenya overseas experienced an earthquake-like movement at exactly 10:27 p.m. m. yesterday, which is April 28, 2023. There was a slight earthquake that was felt in several cities in the country this afternoon. All these links with Africa are slowly but surely dividing Africa. Splitting in two, like anything in geology, is an extremely long process that will take millions of years, but will eventually cause part of East Africa to separate from the rest of the continent, likely resulting in a new ocean emerging between the two masses. of land, the colossal rupture. It is associated with the East African Rift system, one of the largest rifts in the world that extends for thousands of kilometers through several countries in Africa, including Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique.
This Earth system means that the African plate is divided into two plates, the smaller Somali plates and the larger Nubian plates, which are moving away from each other at a super slow rate of millimeters per year back in 2018, the news that emerged A crack in Kenya went viral and many claimed this was evidence. of Africa
splittingin two before our very eyes why this surprising scene was related to the East African Rigged System, as some scientists reported at the time, this was probably just a very localized expression of the Valley's regular uplift activity in which has been the torn system of East Africa This current process of about 25 million years ago and cracked in Kenya was an indirect whisper of what is
happeningon the continent;
However, in another 5 to 10 million years, changes in the East African Rift system could result in a drastically different looking world around it. In time we are likely to see a new large ocean between the Somali plates and the Nubian plate, the great continent of Africa will lose its eastern shoulder and the vast sea will cover East Africa, strange as it may seem, its surveillance membrane on Earth. the surface is in a constant state of change it is so slow that human experience cannot explain it the appearance of the world as we know it is relatively new the CBC London today Euro Asia the Americas Africa Africa and Oceania are products of Vast tectonic plates that fit together very slowly like a puzzle;
However, the pieces of this puzzle move on a time scale of millions of years. Just think about the division the Earth saw about 138 million years ago when South America and Africa split apart. on the west coast of Africa and the east coast of South America, you will notice the feet together like two pieces of a puzzle beautifully highlighting how these
continentswere once united as one, the departure of East Africa would simply sound like another page of this giant geological storybook, who knows. whether humanity will be around to see any of these changes, but it doesn't seem too hopeful.
