"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. "

Norway Rockslide Isolates 500 People (Aug 1)

Around 500 residents and visitors in the small community of Todalen in Nordmøre, central Norway, were isolated at mid-week after a mud and rockslide roared down a nearby mountainside, blocking the only road into town.

The slide also tore down a powerline between Surnadal and Sunndal, leaving them without power and telephone connections.

The town’s roughly 325 residents could only be reached via boat, after the slide also tore out sections of the road. Emergency crews weren’t sure when they would be able to repair the road enough to get it open again.

Several tourists were also trapped in the isolated if scenic area, and local officials were working on ways of getting food, power and communication to them. Local newspaper Tidens Krav reported no injuries after the slide, but much uncertainty and inconvenience.

A landslide surprised traffic on a highway in southern Colombia Thursday, killing at least six as the mud and rocks buried several vehicles including buses.

“Until now we have been able to remove five vehicles; two buses, a truck, a car and an ambulance,”  Andres Cardozo, the chief of the Florencia fire department told Colombia Reports.

The landslide took place on the border of the Huila and Neiva departments, covering half a mile of the road connecting the city of Neiva and the town of Florencia.

While dozens are feared trapped under the rubble, the fireman said that so far six people were found dead and 10 others were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.

Cardozo explained he magnitude of the landslide was  extraordinary, even for Colombian standards where landslides are common during rainy season.

“They’re talking about 28,000 cubic meters of soil that fell over a stretch of 800 meters. Almost a kilometer of road is covered by the landslide that hit the area,”  said the official.

According to radio station Santa Fe, 28 people are missing and feared trapped under the rubble. Cardozo confirmed authorities are assuming to find more bodies as rescue efforts are ongoing.

“There are still vehicles that are trapped in the middle of the landslide and we know there are more dead,” said Cardozo who refused to speculate about the number of cars or people trapped in the rubble.

Landslide closes section of Highway 194 in Avery County

Posted: Jul 16, 2013 12:13 AM CDTUpdated: Jul 16, 2013 11:06 AM CDT


An estimated two mile section of Highway 194 in Avery County, North Carolina is closed after a landslide caused a section of the road to collapse Monday night.
A spokesperson for the Avery County Department of Emergency Communications told News Channel 11 that Highway 194 - known locally as The Three Lane - was heavily damaged and impassable between Elk Park and Newland. It will be closed indefinitely. 
The road closure is from the upper entrance of Blevins Creek Road to the intersection of Highway 19E, the primary road from Avery and surrounding counties into Northeast Tennessee.
A large section of bank next to highway 194 gave way. Responders at the scene said there are indications the highway is starting to buckle.  They also said the landslide is close to 100 yards in length next to the highway. 
We have been told at least one home has been impacted....sending the occupants to the hospital with minor injuries.
"This is going to be a traffic nightmare for a while," the spokesperson said.

 North Carolina State Police was on scene early Tuesday assisting with traffic control as were NCDOT engineers.
All large trucks traveling from Tennessee toward Newland on Highway 19E will not be allowed past the Highway 194 interchange and will have to stay on Highway 19E bypassing the affected area.
All cars and light trucks will be detoured onto Blevins Creek Road.   Motorists will need to use caution because it, too, has been flood damaged, a dispatcher said.
"It's a major deal," an emergency spokesperson said.

8 Saskatoon families asked to leave homes over slope failure

Posted: Jul 12, 2013 6:38 PM ET

Last Updated: Jul 12, 2013 7:18 PM ET

Eight Saskatoon families are being asked to voluntarily leave their homes because of concerns about slope failure in the area.

Officials from the city said the homes affected are along 11th Street East. Notices were being issued Friday afternoon.

Murray Totland, Saskatoon's city manager, called the shifting soil a public safety concern.

The city said increased movement was noted recently in the slope between 11th Street East and Saskatchewan Crescent East.

"We consider [the movement] alarming," Mike Gutek, Saskatoon's manager of infrastructure, said Friday. "Last year we were talking about the slope moving in terms of millimetres per day. We're now talking about the slope moving centimetres per day."

The residents most affected by the slope failure have been kept informed, Gutek said, and more meetings — for all residents in the area — were set for next week.

Saskatoon has been evaluating the condition of the slope with a consulting engineer. Homeowners were also being advised to get their own advice.

Gutek said the people being asked to evacuate their homes should check with an engineer before returning.

The city's fire department was asking affected residents to register with them, so they can account for people.

A command bus will also be set up in the neighbourhood.

The city said mandatory evacuations could yet be issued.

The shifting ground has been a concern for over a year, most recently in the spring.

Monitoring this week revealed what the city called a serious increase in the rate of movement of the earth.

They said addressing the issue would not be easy and residents could be out of their homes for months.
