... seem to slam the ground, like it is going to fall apart/crumble.
First, I like the image of the ground falling apart or crumbling. LawrenceC is correct, that this is not a common usage, but you seem to be writing something more poetic and less literal, and it certainly paints a vivid image.
The edge of a cliff (also known as a "bluff") may be described as falling apart or crumbling. So, if you are trying to give a sense that the thunderstorm made the subject feel as if the very earth were about to give way - that's a fantastic way of putting it!
Now, I wouldn't recommend using the "fall apart/crumble" in the work. A slash is awkward and probably incorrect. "Crumble" includes the meaning of falling apart, so it is fine on its own. Now on to the rest...
The torrential downpour has loud-banging sound because of thunder that is so intense the air waves from it...
Here, I agree with others that there are both word-choice problems (specifically, "air waves") and an overly complex and redundant sentence structure. I would recommend a simpler, more direct sentence, such as
The torrential downpour slammed the earth. The deafening roar of the thunder seemed to shake the ground, as if it were going to crumble.
What a beautiful and scary image you've painted!
