This aerial video released by a Turkish news agency shows how the ground cracked open during the powerful earthquake.
The fault line can be seen meandering through fields in the province of Kahraman-maras the epicenter of the quake.
The fracture was caused by the 7.8 magnitudes catastrophic temblor that killed over 42,000 people in Turkey and thousands more in neighboring Syria.
A drone dispatched by the IHA News agency flew over the town of Turkoglu where footage shows fields split into two by the crack/ which stretched for miles.
Turkiye sits on several fault lines including the east Anatolian and the north Anatolian which experts say make it one of the world’s most seismically active regions.
