"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. "

One hurt, hundreds flee in Mindanao landslides

One hurt, hundreds flee in Mindanao landslides

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (Xinhua) - At least one person got injured and hundreds fled as a low pressure area (LPA) hovering over southern Philippines triggered landslides and flooding there, local officials said today.

Several houses were also destroyed as parts of a gold-rich mining village in Monkayo, a town in Southern Philippine province of Compostela Valley, were hit by two landslide incidents today, Chief Inspector Jed Clamor, regional police spokesperson for Southern Mindanao, said.

At around 2 a.m. today, a five-year-old boy sustained injuries in a landslide occurred in the mining community of Mt. Diwata, Monkayo. Another landslide hit the area around 9 a.m., destroying a house but causing no further injuries, Clamor said.

Quoting local police officials, Clamor said 247 families were also preemptively evacuated in five municipalities in Compostela Valley as moderate to heavy rains spawned by a LPA pelted the province and many parts of Mindanao since Thursday night.

Evacuations were also reported in towns in other areas of the region, he added.

The Philippine Department of Transportation and Communication today noon announced at least 37 domestic flights were canceled due to the bad weather, even as the LPA was moving sluggishly some 680 km from Mindanao's General Santos City, bringing rains while the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration still monitoring if the bad weather system could develop into a tropical cyclone.

A landslide that blocked Dart River has caused flooding and created an unstable natural dam that may be at risk of breaking.

5 January 2014 

A landslide has blocked Dart River in Otago, causing flooding upstream and a natural dam that could break at any time.

Officials are warning people to avoid the area after the slip, which happened on the river near Glenorchy, northwest of Queenstown, about midday on Saturday.

It posed hazards for trampers, campers and boaties the Department of Conservation and the Queenstown Lakes District Council said on Sunday.

There was extensive flooding at Dredge Flat, upstream of the slip, and trampers have to detour 2km through forest to get around flooded parts of the track, said DOC's senior ranger of conservation services at Glenorchy, Richard Kennett.

The river flow had dropped to minimal levels because of the damming effect upstream, but there was a constant risk pressure behind the slip will force a surge of water through.

This would put anyone in the river below in danger.

Harbourmaster Marty Black said boaties, kayakers and other recreational users should stay out of the Dart River until further notice.

DOC is strongly advising people to defer trips on the Rees Dart circuit until the hazard has been fully assessed and more information is available.

GNS Science experts were assessing the slip and extent of the hazard.

Dart River Jet Safaris tourist jet boat trips were suspended while the situation was investigated, a Dart River spokeswoman said.

The landslide happened at Sandy Bluff, about 10km above Chinaman's Bluff.

A massive rock slide in West Virginia and another destructive landslide in the UK divides village in two.

Rockslide Closes West Virginia Highway (Dec 27)
A massive rock slide that pulverized and covered a large portion of W.Va. 3 in western Raleigh County caused a scramble Friday evening as state and Department of Transportation representatives worked to formulate an emergency operations plan and strategy for clearing the blockage.

Three gigantic boulders -- one estimated to tip the scales at approximately 3,000 pounds -- broke loose from the mountainside and crashed across Coal River Road between Sundial and Pettry Bottom just before 5 p.m. Friday.

The Department of Transportation says a section of W.Va. Route 3 in Raleigh County will remain closed for at least 10 days while crews remove the rockslide from the road.

Dundee Landslide Closes Streets, Over 100 Evacuated (Dec 30)
More than 100 people had to be evacuated from more than 40 flats after a major landslide caused a wall to collapse in Dundee.

Gardens and patios disappeared as tons of earth and rubble tumbled down from the rear of tenements in Gardner Street, crashing into flats below on Lochee Road.

A grassy area at the back of the homes was destroyed as a retaining wall disappeared at around 4pm yesterday, with earth and rubble strewn down around 50 metres of the slope and piling up against the Lochee Road flats.

No one was injured, however residents in some 24 flats at 2, 4 and 6 Gardner Street were hurriedly told by police they had to leave their properties immediately after the blocks of tenements “wobbled” following the landslide.

Meanwhile flat-dwellers at 175 to 179 Lochee Road were also removed from around 20 homes by police after feeling the impact of the mud striking their building.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 4pm and the City Engineer surveyed the damage and was due to return today to further assess the situation.

Police immediately closed off Gardner Street at the junction of Loons Road and Rankine Street at Lochee Road, along with connecting side streets and diverted traffic away from the area.

However although emergency vehicles, including fire tenders, police and Scotland Gas Networks vehicles lined a section of Lochee Road, the main route between the city and Lochee was kept fully open.

Evacuated residents were assisted by Dundee City Council officers who were on hand to arrange any alternative accommodation and offered an emergency rest centre. However the affected residents were able to make their own arrangements.

Roy O’Kane, who owns the basement flat nearest to the landslide, said: “I’m just amazed it wasn’t the whole building, all that’s left is the patio and it’s squint.

“After that it’s just a gaping hole. We’re talking ten feet here, if it had been any further in, then the stairwell out the back would have gone and people wouldn’t have been able to get down.

“It’s really scary and I’m still in shock.”

Landslide threatens 40 homes in East Jerusalem
Published yesterday (updated) 13/12/2013 19:46
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Landslides occurred Friday in an East Jerusalem neighborhood as a result of heavy snow accumulation, threatening at least 40 nearby houses located on lands previously weakened by Israeli authorities' excavations nearby, a local group said.

Landslides led to the degradation of hillsides in the Ain al-Lowza neighborhood of Silwan, opening cracks and threatening 40 nearby houses with potential destruction, the Wadi Helwa Information Center said.

A statement from the group said previous excavations by Israel to build a wall through the area have caused extensive damage to the ground, and the effects of the storm have exacerbated the negative effects.

The majority of the landslides occurred in a large plot of land owned by local resident Abu Tayeh where 40 homes have been built.

Abu Tayeh said it was the first time he had experienced such a severe problem on his land, blaming Israeli authorities for failing to complete work they had started on a neighborhood wall.

"The Israeli municipality does not weigh the value of people's lives," he said. 

"They are responsible for causing this collapse, and we demand the completion of the construction of the fence."
