Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that the lowest dry point on Earth is the shoreline of the Dead Sea?

Bordering Israel, Jordan and the Middle East, the shoreline sits nearly 1,400 feet (420 meters) below sea level. It continues to become lower every year, dropping nearly a meter a year due to the tectonic plate activity of the Arabian and African plates, upon which it sits.
