Village in Argentina split in half. People saw a huge crack after heavy rains in December last year. This situation has worried locals.
The rains have damaged rural housing. Several families have sought assistance from the charity organization "Caritas" in Anyatuyya (Anatuya). It is the volunteers of the NGO sent the photos that illustrate this note.
Residents were told that the crack extends at least 3 km to the forest, where, as expected, continues. They do not believe that the origin of the crack due to the rain, but they believe that its appearance is caused by some previous seismic movement, and precipitation "cleaned up" the soil revealing what was hidden.
