This is probably one of the best landslide videos so far. It was posted on Youtube yesterday, with the title: “Terrible Landslide in the Mountains of Dagestan!“
It is a classic and very spectacular example of an earthflow. The people trying to rescue the car were fortunate, and indeed I suspect that with a winch the vehicle would be recovered. The rapid transition from slow creep to fast flow, occurring at the point of the screenshot below, remarkable.
