Why you don’t want to get caught in a landslide part one:
This was recorded at Dalhousie in Himachal Pradesh in India. The main slide happens in the first 30 seconds of the film. When you watch it a second time, keep an eye on the material on the right side of the slide, and in particular the impact that it makes when it reaches the road.
Thanks to Sam Stronach for pointing this one out to me.
Why you don’t want to get caught in a landslide part two:
I can’t embed this one unfortunately. The video at the link below, once you get past the annoying advert, shows a lucky escape for a digger driver who was working on a slope in Whakatane in North Island, New Zealand:
The rate at which new landslide videos are appearing is remarkable, but as they are so informative about landslide processes I will continue to post them as appropriate.
