Several cracks in the earth were reported from Kuchchaveli , Trincomalee last night and this morning, the Seismic Activities & Tsunami Alert Centre (SATAC) told Daily Mirror online

Field officers are conducting the relevant experiments to determine the reason for these cracks, it is suspected be a normal occurrence due to the layer of clay in the ground SATAC officials added.

Meanwhile Disaster Management Center officials in the area added that the public were being cordon off from the area with the assistance of the Army and Police while the cracks were being scientifically investigated and that it did not pose any danger to the public.

Further they added that a sand like substance had oozed out from the cracks and that it too will be investigated and identified. (Daily MIrror online)

    A storm in a tea cup! As a village boy, I have witnessd many spectacles of layers of clay on paddy fields manifesting wide cracks during dry and warm spells of weather.

    End of Mayan calender is not the end of world.

    Paddy Suman Sunday, 23 January 2011 10:43 AM

    According to USGS, there are no seismic activities nearby. There is no need to panic. People are making everything out of propotion. This could be a clay crack after heavy rains.

    Jix Sunday, 23 January 2011 04:07 PM

    This seems to be the calm before the storm, ‘feels like’ something awful is about to hit us, and it will unless there is a positive shift in our collective conscience as a country

    KHKaru Sunday, 23 January 2011 05:11 PM

    When the politicians begin uttering damn lies during their campaign in the near future, more cracks will open up !
