Imagine standing on the edge of that when it starts sliding.
Well that was cool
I hope that guys home insurance covered mountainside tumble.
The good thing: Scientists predicted and awaited this for years.

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:
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.
