A very cool riverbank collapse video

This is rather fun (link here for those of you using iPads):

The location is not really clear, but NH53 is the road that links Badarpur in Assam with Imphal in Manipur, India, so I would speculate that it is on that road.  Standing so close to those tension cracks as the main mass collapsed was somewhat foolhardy.  It is a luck that there was no retrogression of the landslide mass.
