Though it is not clear what triggered such an occurrence, netizens tried to come up with their own theories. While some said that the land rose due to the tectonic activity, others debated that it was due to methane trapped in the earth.

“This thing happened due to tectonic activities. It’s very dangerous to stay here. Maybe some volcanic activity happened,” wrote a user, while another commented, “Not really due to tectonic activity, but methane trapped in the earth gets released getting the wet layer to form a bubble, that is what seems to be happening here.”
