New crack in garage floor

Hello.

I have a free-standing garage at a rental. Today the renter sent me photos of the concrete cracked in a couple spots and kicked up dirt.

The floor was cracked, to begin with. I've owned the house for 15 years with no new cracks but this one showed up today.

Thoughts? Concerns? Things to watch for?

So if dirt is coming out of the cracks then there must be water pushing the dirt?

I agree - looks like that chunk of concrete was pushed up and water is the only thing I can think of which could do that other than maybe an earthquake.

Thanks.

What would you do about that? The garage has gutters. Doesn't seem like we've had that much rain.
