A terrifying event is taking place in Los Angeles, CA: the ground is moving sideways in slow-motion, rising 15 feet in four hours in some areas, utterly destroying roads, knocking down utility poles and wrecking infrastructure.
A seen in the photo above, and others below, Santa Clarita, CA is experiencing shifting ground, where entire mountains are literally moving sideways!
A two mile section of Vasquez Canyon Road had to be closed until further notice because of the phenomenon. Here's what Vasquez Canyon Road looked like at 12:08 PM Pacific time:
It is important to note that, according to the US Geological Survey, no earthquakes have taken place during this time, to account for this type of land deformation!
The only thing I can think of that would cause ground deformation that fast is a rising body of magma... Since no earthquake is responsible, I am still perplexed...

Under the picture it says it could be from rain. Makes sense. Hopefully a geologist or civil engineer can speak up.
