"The causes of landslides are not a mystery to mankind. Layers of rock and soil such that rain running along a clay or rock layer can create a slippery surface for the weight of the layers above it is a common cause. A rock jumble from previous mountain building, broken or fractured rock easily dislodged. We have stated that the earthquakes man experiences between the periodic passages of Planet X can be considered aftershocks from the last passage, and this is true of landslides also. Mountain building rumples the landscape, so the land is not flat but has steep ravines and hill sides. Older mountain ranges are recognized for their rounded or smoothed appearance, because of frequent landslides distributing the rubble.

"As we approach another passage, another Pole Shift, the pace of landslides has picked up. Why would this be? Plates under pressure will put pressure on regions that contain rumpled hillsides and deep ravines, as these give more readily than strictly flat land, thus act as a weak link. In addition, due to the wobble, the weather has gotten more extreme, with drought and deluge increasing in extremes. Dry ground, suddenly flooded with rainwater needing to seek its level as runoff, will create internal water slides between the rock and soil layers that constitute the rumpled hillsides. Is there an early warning system that mankind could use? The trembles that soil about to slide emits could be detected, yes. These are not earthquakes, and have their own frequency. "

Hawkins County landslide leaves community concerned

Posted: Feb 21, 2019 11:36 PM EST

HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) - A landslide in Hawkins County on State Route 70 left one person dead and one injured.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol Steven Lawson, 62, died. He was in one of the two cars swept away by the landslide.

The landslide happened in the early hours of morning on Thursday.

Residents in the Hawkins County area express they were shocked when they first heard of it.

"I guess it was one of those thing that you see that in California, but you'd never expect that here in Hawkins County that you would wake up one day and just realize that they would have to be evacuated from their homes because of something like a landslide," said Avery Fields, a Hawkins county resident.

At least three families were asked to evacuate and emergency responders say they're still worried about what is yet to come.

"Right now all the mountain ranges we have we are concerned about," said Gary Murrell, Hawkins County EMA Director. "We actually thought this morning that the slide wasn't gonna be there. We thought it would be at the next curve but it was not there."

One resident, Millard Hartley, has lived in the Rogersville area for over twenty five years. He has farmland on the other side of the State Route 70 landslide and is concerned the rain might make things worse.

"We've lived over here since 1993 and I have not seen it this wet in a long time," Hartley said.

Hartley also says he knew Steven Lawson's family and is devastated by the tragedy.

"I didn't know Steve, said Hartley. "I knew his family. They are good family oriented people and I'm just sorry this happened."

According to the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the road will be closed long term.

Deadly landslide in Karangasem kills 2 and injures 12

Jan. 28, 2019

A six-meter cliff mudslide struck a home in the village of Ban, Karangasem, last night, resulting in the death of two family members and the injury of a further 12.

The house, which belonged to I Nengah Suarta, was crowded at the time of the accident because relatives had come to visit a sick family member, according to an article by Kumparan. The whole group were reportedly watching television together when debris from the landslide collided with the residence at around 7pm.

With most of the party trapped inside, Suarta’s son, I Komang Andre, was somehow able to find a way out. Andre immediately sought the help of neighbors, and authorities were soon called to the scene.

The evacuation effort was carried out by a joint team that included village officials, personnel from the Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD), Kubu Police, and Karangasem search and rescue (SAR) teams.

By 11pm, all of the victims were evacuated and taken to the nearby Kubu Health Center for treatment. Among them were three toddlers and a pregnant woman with injuries to the legs and face, according to information from the BPBD cited by Kumparan.

Sadly, two people, namely Ni Ketut Puspa, 20, and Ni Ketut Martini, 19, could not be saved. Puspa reportedly died on the scene while the younger woman passed away at the health center.

Costa Rica: Landslide destroyed house, factory and blocked track between Paso Real and San Vito.

Oct 24, 2018

slope works and poor water management removed 600,000 cubic meters of mass in the south.

The saturation of the soil, together with inadequate buildings in the upper part of a hillside in El Sabanero neighborhood of San Vito, Coto Brus, destroyed a house, a concrete factory and partially closed the road that connects with Paso Real de Buenos Aires.

Blas Sánchez, geologist of the National Emergency Commission (CNE), visited the site this week and found that some 600,000 cubic meters of material slipped. Of the situation, the Municipality of Coto Brus was alerted as well as some 17 families whose houses are at risk.

Nigeria: Landslide in Cross River affects 60 houses, historical sites.

Oct 16, 2018

No fewer than 60 houses and historical sites have been destroyed by landslides at Anderson along Marina street in Calabar, Cross River State.


Also threatened, DAILY POST investigations revealed, are the Palace of the Obong of Calabar, Edgerley Memorial primary School and Primary Health Centre among others.

Cross River State is also at the risk of losing some historical sites such as the European Cemetery.


Speaking at the erosion sites, the village head of Esuk Effiom, Anderson Akoi, Dr Effiom Ewa Ekeng Magnus Henshaw explained that the area started experiencing erosion challenges over 30 years ago.

He said, “But for the intervention of the federal government in some parts of the sites which helped to mitigate the impact of the landslide, the movement of the earth would have been devastating.

“At the moment, the gully site is expanding at a very fast rate”. Henshaw explained that over the years, the community had tried within the limit of available resources but the rate at which the gully is expanding with new sites created at a very short notice put the residents at a serious risk.
