An expansive 130 KM crack has been discovered in Larsen C, Antarctica. The area in which Larsen C is located is “slightly smaller than Scotland” according to researchers, and is covered in its entirety with floating ice above deep water.
In Edgar Cayce’s own words,
“The earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will appear open waters in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be seen new lands of the Caribbean Sea… South America will be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end; and in the Antarctic off Tierra del Fuego will be land, and a strait with rushing waters.”
“When there is first the breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea and those as apparent as the sinking or rising of that which is almost opposite it, or in the Mediterranean, and the Aetna area, then we may know it has begun.”
The crack measures around 70 miles long, and 300 feet wide. The astounding size of the crack will produce an iceberg the size of Delaware, once the crack has spread. The total size of the resulting iceberg would be around 2,400 miles.
Since 2011, scientists have monitored the crack for changes and growth. Between 2011 and 2015, the crack grew another 30 kilometers and measured a width of 200 meters by the year 2015. Then, between March and August of 2016, the area grew another 22 km in length, and widened to 350 meters, according to Project Midas.
Now, the crack is at a massive length of 130 kilometers, with researchers predicting that around 10% of the ice shelf to break off in the near future. While the area itself will not necessarily raise sea levels, ice that is held back by the shelf may flow a bit faster into the ocean, thus impacting the global rise. One study indicated that oceans should be expected to rise between 0.8 and 2 meters, which would be enough to destroy many east coast cities in the U.S, according to Ecowatch.
In the past few weeks the crack has grown by more than 6 miles, and it now measures more than 100 miles long. Once the crack is complete, a giant iceberg larger than Rhode Island will break or “calve” off of Antarctica. The iceberg would be one of the largest on record.
