Soon after the incident, people started looking for the cause behind this; some suggested tectonic plate activity, while some said it was because of methane gas trapped inside.
“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,” wrote a user.
Refuting the methane theory, another user wrote, “If this was caused by methane, then this much methane could have caused breathing issues to the people standing and recording...It is unlikely to be methane, but who knows.”
