"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. "

Kazakhstan: Kolsai landslide was shot on video from a bird's eye view.

May 2, 2018

A video of the landslide appeared on the web, which came down near Lake Kolsai, shot from above.

Recall, April 19, 2018 in the Kegensky area near the village of Sata there was a shift in the rock mass. According to the data provided by the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Kazakhstan, there is currently no movement of the body of the landslide. The road to the lake is closed. You can only reach him on foot.


It is known that the total length is 1700 meters, and the length is 920 meters.

It is noted that the forces of the Emergency Situations Department of the Almaty region and the Kazselezaschita state institution of the CoES carry out round-the-clock monitoring. At the moment, more than 100 people work on the site of subsidence, as well as rescuers have 50 units of special equipment and 12 motor pumps.

Earlier, we reported that on April 19 a rock mass shift occurred in the Almaty region, as a result of the geomorphological phenomenon, 400 meters of the road from the village of Sata to Lake Kolsai collapsed, and also 4 power lines were cut off

The cracking-sliding landslide at Caijiazhuang in China on 30th April.

Caijiazhuang village: a cracking-sliding landslide that has killed nine people
Yesterday I highlighted recently published research into the diurnal cycle and its impacts on cracking-sliding landslides on the Loess Plateau in China. Ironically, the same day an example of such a landslide occurred, on this occasion at Caijiazhuang village in Lishi District of Lyuliang City, in Shanxi Province. Xinhua has an unusually brief report on the landslide, which notes that:

“Nine people have died in a landslide in north China’s Shanxi Province, local authorities said Monday. The landslide happened at around 4:57 a.m. Monday in Caijiazhuang village in Lishi District of Lyuliang City, the local publicity department said.”

The Li et al. (2018) research that I featured yesterday noted that these landslides occur preferentially between 10 pm and 5 am, so this landslide fits the pattern.

The Straits Times has a couple of images of the landslide:-

On the face of it this appears to meet the description of a cracking-sliding landslide, and the material appears to be loess or something similar. This image shows the landslide from a different perspective:-

The presence of the chimneys suggests that this might have been a brick pit, which in turn might imply that undercutting of the slope might have been a factor in this instability, perhaps. There are certainly signs of instability in the adjacent slopes, though perhaps not on the scale of this landslide. Li et al. (2018) found that a very high proportion of these landslides were associated with slope disturbance of some type.

Canada: Landslide damages Westside Road.

May 1, 2018

Traffic is down to one lane in the 8500 block of Westside Road just north Ewing Landing after a second landside in the area.

Part of the road, on the west side of Okanagan Lake, caved in around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, but problems were identified on Monday.

Early Tuesday afternoon, Central Okanagan Emergency Operations also issued an evacuation alert for two properties below Westside Road at Ewing Landing because of “slope instability.”

Just before 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday that evacuation alert was upgraded to an evacuation order.

Residents of 8645 N Westside Road and 8635 Westside Road are required to leave their properties.

The regional district said officials have also declared a local state of emergency covering the area along Westside Road from 5625 Westside Road to 10374 Westside Road “in response to the threat to property caused by slope instability.”

Neighbour Dietrich Goldammer said he saw growing cracks in the road before the landslide

There is a gaping hole in the roadside foliage where trees and bushes have crashed down.

Single lane alternating traffic is currently getting through.

It does not appear that any buildings were hit by the slide.
