"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. "

Heavy rains led to a landslide that killed three men in the south-central province of Phu Yen Saturday night and left another missing.

The bodies of Bui Cong Khai, 30, Truong Quoc Cong, 33, and Pham Ngoc Nghia, 31, were found Saturday night. Security forces are still looking for Luong Ngoc Tinh, 34, who is presumed to be buried somewhere under the debris of soil, rock and fallen trees.

Tran Trong Ky, vice chairman of Tay Hoa District, said: “Many large trees hindered the search.”

Ky said the landside covered nearly 800 meters of mountainside.

Locals said the four men did not return from their trip to the jungle Friday to collect resin.

Meanwhile, authorities in the central province of Quang Ngai are looking for local man Dinh Van Lang, also believed to be buried a landslide that collapsed his house more than a week ago.

They found the body of his wife, Dinh Thi Hiep, earlier this week underground. She had been thrown more than 300 meters from the house.

Their two children are safe as they were not home during the disaster.

Dinh Van Ha, the couple’s neighbor in the mountainous district of Son Tay, said it was pouring rain and he heard an explosion that sounded like a bomb, as rocks started tumbling down en masse.

“Their house was buried, nothing left to see. Maybe we should move,” Ha told news website VnExpress.

Another landslide early on Friday hit three agricultural offices in Son Tay, damaging equipment and burying documents..

Indonesia: Thousands cut off by landslides, bridge and road damaged
Around 130,000 residents of West Pesisir regency in Lampung have been cut off from surrounding areas after landslides damaged the 60-kilometer Way Semangka bridge on the Liwa-Krui route in Suoh district on Sunday evening.

The Liwa-Krui route, which runs through Bukit Barisan National Park (TNBBS), connects the newly established regency with West Lampung regency and Bengkulu. Officers at the Lampung Public Works Agency have started to repair the bridge, but they have yet to fix the access road as the agency is still waiting for the Forestry Ministry to issue the repair permit.

“We need to get the permit from the Forestry Ministry because the route is located in the TNBBS area. We have mobilized heavy equipment to handle the problem,” said Lampung Public Works Agency and Bina Marga (Highways) head Ali Rahman on Tuesday.

“The damaged bridge was actually incomplete, leaving it susceptible to serious damage from floods or landslides,” Ali added.

West Lampung Regent Mukhlis Basri expressed his hope that the central government would immediately provide assistance to repair the Way Semangka bridge and the Liwa-Krui road.

“The route is very important for residents in West Pesisir and West Lampung, but our budget is limited to fix the route,” said Mukhlis.

Landslide Buries National Park Road in Alaska (Oct 23)
A massive landslide buried a 200-foot stretch of Denali National Park road in Alaska with tons of rock and soil.

The slide debris is piled in depths of up to 35 feet. Officials estimate about 30,000 yards of rock and soil fell from a point 500 feet above the road.

That part of the road, 37 miles in, is already closed this time of year. There are no known casualties.

The landslide was discovered Wednesday by road-crew supervisors. Officials believe the slide occurred very recently. Initial photos of the area show debris flowed over light snow that recently fell.

Longtime park workers recall that the last huge landslide occurred in the late 1980s. In that slide — 45 miles in — more roadway was covered, but a lot less debris fell, Fister said.
