Chongqing: a dramatic rockfall video from China last month
The Chinese news agency Xinhua has posted a dramatic video on Youtube showing dashcam footage of a large rockfall in SW China on 9th April 2018. According to the Weather Channel this occurred in Chongqing. I cannot find much more information about this event:-
The image below is not clear, but it shows the small pick-up truck that was on the road at the time of the rockfall. Large boulders, traveling at very high speed, narrowly missed making a direct impact on the vehicle:
The larger displaced mass of soil can also be seen on the left side of the image. The reports suggest that no-one was killed or injured in this event.
