Today, an increasing number of US earthquakes could soon ruin the country, geologists say.
The University of Washington has already seismological graphs presented , showing a gigantic geological trench that extends across the states in the center of the USA from north to south and the region of a possible division of the North American continent marked.
As reported by geologists, this anomaly was first discovered in the 1960s when scientists discovered a strange subterranean rift along the Upper Lake that led south.
The discovery was a surprise to American scientists at the time, as there were no mountains in the area. The following studies showed that this anomaly stretched across the continent, resembling in form and shape the huge cracks in eastern Africa.
It has been reported that the tectonic plate beneath the southeastern regions of the US will break through the overlying layers of earth.

This could be the cause of future earthquakes in the Washington area and in other cities on the east coast, where there are basically no preconditions for aftershocks, according to Live Science .
According to Berk Biryol of the University of North Carolina , the Washington area and other major cities in the east of the country have been underwent a rather intense seismic activity in recent years, initially stunning seismologists as the country’s east rests on a stable continental crust that would prevent the occurrence of any earthquake.

In recent years, the US Geological Survey (USGS) has uncovered the link between the breakup and the rising number of earthquakes, and concludes that the number of US earthquakes has increased dramatically over the past six years .
In fact, a sudden increase in the number of seismic events is expected in some regions of the country that use fracking, including Oklahoma, California, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Ohio, Alabama and New Mexico .
