"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. "

SAVANNAH, TN (WSMV) - A third home along the Tennessee River is in jeopardy of sliding into the river after another landslide.

The home on Chalk Bluff is close to falling into the river after another landslide on Sunday.
The Hardin County Fire Department said in a post on Facebook that the owners of the home have moved everything out of it.
The home is near where two homes slid into the river in February after a landslide because of the recent rainfall.

Landslide forces closure of SR 88 near Lake Roosevelt 
Posted Mar 27, 2020

PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS5) - A portion of SR 88, the Apache Trail, is closed near Lake Roosevelt today after a landslide dumped tons of rock on the roadway.

The closure is between the Roosevelt Lake bridge and the Roosevelt dam at milepost 242, about 2 miles west of Roosevelt Lake. Access to Apache Lake is cut off by this closure.

There were no injuries reported. There is no estimated reopening time; however, this is expected to be an extended closure while crews remove earth and rocks.

In addition, an unpaved section of SR 88 remains closed indefinitely between the Fish Hill Creek overlook at milepost 229 and the Apache Lake Marina turnoff near milepost 222 due to extensive damage that occurred last year from flooding out of the Woodbury Fire burn scar. Heavy rains caused several landslides compromising the historic roadway.

ls with the Arizona Department of Transportation reported the incident around 5:30 a.m. with a tweet.

At least 10 labourers killed as landslide hits marble excavation site in Buner, Pakistan

Daily Times (Pakistan)
Sun, 23 Feb 2020 19:23 UTC

At least 10 people were killed and five others injured when a landslide hit a marble excavation site in Salarzai area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Buner district on Saturday.

According to KP Relief Department, more than 30 labourers were working at the marble mine in Bampokha village when portions of it collapsed, burying the workers under marble slabs and mounds of earth. Around a dozen labourers are still feared to be trapped under the rubble while a rescue operation is underway to recover them.

Soon after the incident, both police and rescue officials, along with the local residents, rushed to the spot and started rescue and relief works. They pulled out 14 labourers trapped under the rubble. However, 10 of them could not survive the incident, with four others sustaining serious injuries.

The bodies and the injured were rushed to the District Headquarters Hospital Daggar, while some of the injured were also shifted to Swat Medical Complex and Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar. On-duty doctors confirmed that out of the five injured, four were in a critical condition while one received minor injuries.

A statement issued by the relief department said the deputy commissioner has contacted the director general mining to dispatch a technical team for the assessment of the area where people are feared to be trapped. "There is a risk of further sliding because it is the vulnerable area/portion of the mountain ... this could further escalate sliding risk while carrying out the rescue operation," the statement added.

According to the relief department, police personnel, volunteer organisations and local community members are helping with the rescue operation. The requisite machinery and ambulances are also available at the scene.

KP Chief Minister Mehmood Khan, taking notice of the incident, directed one of his aides, Riyaz Khan, to visit the site at the earliest. "We stand with the affected families in this hour of grief," he said in a statement, and directed the officials concerned to expedite the rescue efforts and use all resources available to ensure swift recovery of those still trapped in the rubble.

The Salarzai Bampokha region is rich in marble resources, which are transported to parts of KP in large quantities. According to locals, these marble mines fulfil about 70 per cent requirement of the rock across the country. The landowners, leaseholders and agents earn billions of rupees but the labourers are often exposed to threats during mining, locals say.

Mudslide closes only road to 120-person neighborhood near Monroe; could take a year to fix and reopen
Feb. 10, 2020 at 7:11 am


Ken Hopkins said his Snohomish County community often deals with constant rain, heavy snow and ice — but in his 35 years of living in the area, he’s never seen something like this.
“This is kind of a big one,” he said Monday afternoon.
Hopkins lives in Skyview Estates, a 44-house development in Monroe that’s only access to the world comes from a private road. Last week’s deluge of rain created a river of mud that almost completely cut them off from it.
About 150 feet of 260th Avenue Southeast has been destroyed, said Samantha Idle, a Skyview Estates board member. It’s currently accessible only by all-terrain vehicle or on foot.
“We don’t really have a way out,” Hopkins said. “I’m hoping our neighbors are going to step up and say, ‘Let’s make it work.’”
He said that because part of the road is still there, he and his neighbors have been getting up and down the hill by carpooling on some of the residents’ ATVs. Snohomish County Fire District 5 also has an ATV equipped to transport patients in case of emergency, said department spokeswoman Heather Chadwick.

“But I think that novelty is going to wear off soon,” Hopkins said. “Reality is starting to set in.”
About 120 people live in the affected neighborhood, and some residents were escorted out of the area Sunday evening so they could get to school and work.
“This is serious,” Idle said. “We need help.”
Road repair could take anywhere from seven months to over a year, she said. The community is hoping they’ll qualify for some grants to cover the costs.
Meanwhile, King County officials also started making emergency plans in case of landslides in the area.
County officials announced Monday that because of land movement danger in Fall City, they’re asking residents to voluntarily evacuate.
The land movement is threatening 356th Drive near Highway 202, according to a King County Road Services tweet. The road provides sole access for about 75 homes, said Broch Bender, a King County Road Services spokesperson.

“It’s not ominous,” Bender said. “It’s just out of an abundance of caution. The road is open now.”
King County will have a soil expert on scene Tuesday to evaluate next steps, the agency tweeted. There is no estimate for when the land movement will stabilize.
Near Mount Rainier, several roads are closed because of landslides and washouts, according to the Associated Press. The National Park Service has been running an escort convoy each day over a Forest Service back road for residents dealing with the landslide, so they can get supplies.
Crystal Mountain Resort, which has been closed for days by slides on roads leading to the ski area, is planning to reopen Tuesday, pending approval from state transportation officials, the AP reported

Search suspended for two people trapped under landslide in Spain’s Basque Country
TWO people have been trapped in the Basque Country because of a landslide.
7 Feb, 2020 @ 13:37

TWO people have been trapped in the Basque Country because of a landslide.
No signs of life however have yet to be found from the two missing people.
The landslide cut the AP-8 motorway in both directions, which connects Bilbao with San Sebastian.
The incident occurred in Zaldibar, between the towns of Ermua and Eibar.
Emergency services originally started looking for the two people that were trapped as a result but have now had to temporarily suspend their search because of the presence of asbestos.
Josu Zubiaga, Deputy Minister of Security of the Basque Government, said: “They have detected a large amount of asbestos from the collapse deposit.”
He continued on to say that a decision will be made later on today about whether the search will be resumed and what actions need to be taken.
The landslide has caused a spill of more than half a million cubic meters of industrial waste, including asbestos, over the valley that flows into the highway.
This spill has managed to cover an area of 30 metres wide.

Turkey avalanche: At least 28 dead after second landslide hits rescue workers 

An avalanche has slammed into a mountain road in eastern Turkey, wiping out a huge team of rescue workers sent to find two people missing in an earlier avalanche.
Officials said 23 rescue workers were killed while others were still buried under the snow.
Wednesday’s avalanche increased the overall death toll from the disaster to 28.
Some 300 emergency service workers were called to a road near the mountain-surrounded town of Bahcesehir in Van province, which borders Iran, after an avalanche struck late on Tuesday, killing five people.

Governor Mehmet Emin Bilmez said 25 emergency service members were rescued from under the snow and taken to hospital. This takes the death toll to 28 in total.

There was no further information on their conditions.
Five people were killed and two others were missing after the first avalanche buried a snow-clearing vehicle and a minibus. The vehicle's operator and seven passengers escaped alive.

The second avalanche struck on Wednesday as hundreds of emergency workers were searching for the two missing victims, private NTV television reported, adding that fog and heavy snow were hampering the rescue efforts.
State-run Anadolu Agency said the operator, Bahattin Karagulle, was trapped beneath the snow for some 25 minutes before he managed to break a window and escape.
The agency quoted him as saying that he walked towards a village before he was picked up by a vehicle and managed to seek help
