Well that was cool
Holy shit.
I hope that guys home insurance covered mountainside tumble.
The good thing: Scientists predicted and awaited this for years. [editline]18th May 2012[/editline] Searching for the video of they house and the guys in the middle of the Kamtschatka landslide in the valley of geysers in 2007 but I can't find it. Basically a house in the middle of a landslide made of hot ash, boiling water and mud. And it stops at around half a meter from the house's walls.
Since the weather gets warmer every year the permafrost in the swiss alps melts and a lot of places get unstable. Basically the ice held the mountain together. Things like that are going to happen a lot more.
The world is changing. I can feel it in the water
Reminded me of this: [video=youtube;R__3DYQCVnA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R__3DYQCVnA[/video] I'm sure its been posted before but still pretty cool/scarey as hell. Note to self: Do not buy Italian hillside property...
Wait so this was caused by what exactly? I didn't realize there was any seismic activity at the Alps. Educated me please!
Looks like logging might've triggered it going by the fact there was a wooden hut and a clearance around it.
