It's almost as if there's something going on underground that's causing the ground to bulge.

Good observation

The second posters's Youtube vid guy is saying this
break in the ground is on the same longitude line as the BP
oil spill well head. That is very interesting if it is true.
They are both also on a fault line along the same longitude line?

This happens all the time in Tennessee. Ground water in an underground channel expands after a heavy rain and pushes the ground above it upwards. Whan the water goes away, the ground sinks.

During the May floods here, a sinkhole 80 ft by 40 ft openend up in the middle of a highway.

i find this interesting right as i leave michigan from visiting this happens!! oh noo wat did i do! lol

very peculiar. It almost looks like something from below was bulging up the earth.
maybe there's a magma buble below the earth that's slowly applying pressure to the land above?
or other natural occuring, oil?, substance being trapped under pressure released in the earthquake?

needs more investigation to find out.

A giant mothership of some sort like war of the worlds!

That's insane!

I don't know anything about geology but one thing I know for sure is that if I lived anywhere near this site I would be moving location ASAP!

We had one two weeks ago in North Carolina at the Charlotte Nascar track.

Apparently they found a bunch of historical items within it. They blamed it on the rain...but who knows.

I say never pass up a good opportunity.

Now we know where to put Congress.

Nature sure has been acting crazy lately. Me thinks maybe there is something to this 2012 thing after all. Imagine if all this stuff happened 3,000 years ago. We would be doing human sacrifices in an attempt to appease the "Gods".......

This is very cool indeed, I wish someone was able to film it as it happened

Well, sink hole is not what this is, but rather a bulge and fissure from the earth seemingly rising.

I have seen sinkholes in Michigan, this is not one of them.

Look at the trees they are tilted outward, not going inward to signify a sinkhole.

Interesting for sure.

Ever see 2012 with john cusack? Cracks started forming in earth, world started falling apart. By the end of the movie a lot of people were dead. So now we should start looking toward Yellowstone for the next piece of the puzzle. If that blows were all F'ed!

From looking at the video, it's obvious that it is an upward thrust in that area of land mass. I would be interested to find some data on the land region eastward of the upwelling, to see if the eastern region of land subducted, or lowered in elevation.

If so, it could be possible that we're seeing pressure from the atlantic plate pushing westward, and creating pressure in the ancient fault lines that run down from canada through the great lakes, down through indiana/illinois, and southward to the gulf region.

What I find odd is that no USGS systems have noted that upwelling region as having an earthquake.

I've read multiple theories from multiple individuals on the web in regards to the mississippi river being 90-100 miles wide, the great lakes spilling into it, and in essence, splitting the country in half geographically.

If you look at the satellite views of the geography on the upwelling region, all the way down to the coast, you can clearly see where water levels once were, so it's not outside the realm of possibility for it to become that way again.

Most interesting.

WOWWWWWW i fully explained this in my post on the second page. This is not uncommon phenomenon, this happens all the friggin time all over the flippin world!!!!! Some of you people are real nut sacks. I mean nut jobs. I like a good conspiracy just as much as the next guy... but come on.. Maybe if you girls and boys went for some nature walks once in a while and got out from behind your computers this wouldn't be such a mystery to you..

Wow, that's really something. Michigan has really bizarre geology. Many different types of terrain. My one question about this is, is there some sort of underground stream in this crack that might have eroded the soil? I am no geology major or anything. The only knowledge of the natural world comes from books and my time in the Boy Scouts. I watched the youtube video links earlier in the posts and I wish I could go see it for myself, unfortunately, that's quite a drive for me. I'll be looking for updates on this!

Remember in War of the Worlds when the tripods starting coming up from the ground?

Same thing here...

Most likely this is some natural geologic event. That being said, however, let's have fun speculating at a coupel of other possible causes...

1. There is a theory that plate tectonics is not the cause of continental shifting/drifting, but rather that our planet is enlarging, like an inflatible balloon. This inflation causes the continents to separate. Thus, as we near alignment with the plane of the Milky Way, this could somehow be "reawakening" the planetary expansion that caused the destruction of previous civilizations and our species' collective amnesia. Cracks like this might be appearing all over the planet. If so, then perhaps there is something to the expanding Earth theory.

2. Dr. Richard Sauder has written several books that document patents for underground drilling machines large enough to create networks of subterranean tunnels and bases. Our government has had plans for such constructions since the late 40s and early 50s. These documents were obtained via FOIA. Some towns in the midwest have had unexplanined humming coming from underground. Perhaps this crack resulted from underground construction under the area. Without question, our government has underground bases and tunnels; it's a matter of how many/extensive and how deep.

What do you think?

reply to post by PatriotsPride

Earth goes through changes constantly. Since the civil internet only arrived around 13ish years ago, we are able to see some of the changes for ourselves. We live on this awe inspiring planet, which has many-many secrets buried beneath its surface.

It looks like an earthquake occurred.

Good find.

Ease down, Hero. Obviously you think that if ***YOU*** explain something, then it's a closed topic? Relax and realize you don't know it all and that you don't have it in your power to *proclaim* what is and what is not. So sit back, open your eyes, ears and mind. Sure, it's probably something common, but creative, intelligent people like to exercise their minds. MANY THINGS have been uncovered and discovered that way.

This may, or may NOT, be one of the common geological occurrences. However, YOU ARE NOT THE AUTHORITY in this matter. So relax and stop insulting people. You'll get further in life that way. Just a humble suggestion.

If you google earth this location, then look at a fault line map of michigan, you will see this could not be more ON top of a fault line. There are 2 and this is right on top of one of them. Nothing to see here.... just biblical catastrophy!

As to what another poster said - The area where this took place is not the typical da-yooper area... there are allot of Ill/Minn/Wis/ vacation homes in this area. You wont find to much of the yooper twang in this area.
