The Muskat problem models the evolution of the interface between two different fluids in porous media. The Rayleigh-Taylor condition is natural to reach linear stability of the Muskat problem. We show that the Rayleigh-Taylor condition may hold initially but break down in finite time. As a consequence of the method used, we prove the existence of water waves turning.
