"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. "

WATCH: Mudslide on Highway 95 near Bonners Ferry caught on camera

Posted: Apr 12, 2017 4:45 PM EDTUpdated: Apr 12, 2017 5:08 PM EDT

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho -

Flaggers are directing traffic on Highway 95 south of Bonners Ferry after a mudslide covered the road last Friday. 

The slide was caught on camera and the video shows tons of mud, rocks and trees giving way and pushing two layers of concrete barriers off the road. The Idaho Department of Transportation says in all, 800 cubic yards of debris covered the road. 

No one was injured in the slide. 

IDT says Land Surveyor Mathew Wilson (who shot the video) was assessing the hillside stability when he heard popping and cracking. Knowing a slide was imminent, flaggers on scene quickly stopped traffic and minutes later the hillside gave way. 

Debris was cleared by Friday evening, but as of Wednesday, one lane of the highway is closed as the hillside remains unstable. 

Several areas of North Idaho are impacted by this year's historic winter precipitation. Slides have occurred on Idaho State Highways 3, 5, 57, and 97, according to IDT.

The incredible moment a mountain COLLAPSES in Malibu, sending rocks and debris flying and covering cars below in a cloud of dirt

  • Lloyd Cotsen filmed a 'dirt waterfall' when a mountain collapsed in Malibu
  • At first there is a small trickle of dirt before a large chunk of rock falls
  • No one appears to have been injured from the falling rocks

This is the incredible moment a mountainside collapsed and fell on top of several cars in a crowded parking lot 

Dust and rubble filled the air after the 'dirt waterfall' near Zuma Beach in Malibu, California.

At first there is a trickle of dust falling off the mountain like a stream. Lloyd Cotsen noticed this and pulled out his camera to film the incoming collapse.

Meanwhile, oblivious surfers walk by unaware of the impending rock slide. 

A beach-goer notices how close their car is to the crumbling mountain and decides to move their car.

After a minute the amount of rocks and dust begins pouring, a large chunk of the mountain becomes unhinged and plummets down the side.

'That's a new landscape': In a minute the rock slide transformed the mountain

'Holy sugar,' declares an astonished woman nearby.

Cotsen says at the end of the video: 'I caught it all on video too. That might be better than the whales.'

'Holy moly, that's a new landscape.' 

Lawn furniture tumbled down the mountain after the end of the video. No one appears to have been injured.  

Costen told Storyful: 'I was just waiting with my friends who were loading up their paddle boards and noticed the “dirt waterfall”. So, I turned my camera on it just while I was talking to my friends. If they had left sooner, I would have missed it.'

Indonesian landslide (Apr 1) buries up to 27

http://oakridgeobserver.com/2017/04/04/indonesian-landslide-buries-...

Seventeen people were injured and sent for treatment to a local hospital, the national disaster agency spokesman said as the military, police and volunteers worked to score the area for the missing.

One body was found before the search was suspended as rain started to fall. He said that 27 people were still missing, while local army chief Lieutenant Colonel Slamet Sarijanto claimed that at least 38 people were buried in the debris.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed.

"Signs of possible landslides were actually felt by villagers for the past 20 days, with some cracks seen on the rocky hill in the village", Sutopo said.

The landslide hit some 23 houses and farmers harvesting ginger at Banaran village in East Java's Ponorogo district.

Saturday's disaster in Banaran village have forced some 300 people to flee home and take shelters at relatives' houses, he said.

Heavy downpours on Sunday forced rescuers to halt search and rescue operation for the victims of Saturday's landslides in western Indonesia, disaster agency official said.

The landslide over turned vehicles buried buildings and washed away the rich vegetation on the hillside...."

Colombia declares state of emergency after 'avalanche of water' triggered by a landslide smashes through rural city killing at least 193 people as the president warns the death toll will rise 

  • Incident triggered by intense rains left at least 220 missing and 400 people injured in the city of Mocoa
  • Emergency response workers have been continuing the search for survivors after river flooded at midnight 
  • A surgeon said there could be as many as 300 injured and doctors in the area were running out of blood 
  • President Juan Manuel Santos declared a state of emergency in the city when he visited the area

An overflowing river has killed at least 193 people and injured 400 more as an avalanche of water destroyed families' homes.

The incident triggered by intense rains caused devastation in Mocoa, near Colombia's border with Ecuador, according to the country's president.

Juan Manuel Santos has declared a state of emergency in the city.  

Carlos Ivan Marquez with Colombia's national disaster agency says the river flooded around midnight, catching unsuspecting residents off guard in the early Saturday hours.

Muddy water and debris quickly surged through the city's streets, toppling homes, ripping trees from their roots, lifting cars and trucks and carrying them downstream. 

Many of the residents did not have enough time to climb on top of their roofs or seek refuge on higher ground.

At least 220 people are missing after the incident.  

President Juan Manuel Santos warned the death toll could continue to rise.

He said: 'We don't know how many there are going to be. We're still looking.'

Police commander Colonel Omar Bonilla told radio station Caracol earlier: 'At this time we have removed 93 bodies. We have adults, women and infants.' 

Herman Granados, a surgeon at the local hospital, said he believed there are likely to be more than 300 people injured and that doctors were quickly running out of blood. He suspected the death toll would rise.

He said: 'Under the mud, I am sure there are many more.'

Mocoa Mayor Jose Antonia Castro said: 'It's a big area. A big portion of the many houses were just taken by the avalanche but above all the people were warned with enough time and they were able to get out but houses in 17 neighborhoods have basically been erased.'

He also said two bridges were destroyed.

A man who escaped with his wife and 7-month-old baby said there was hardly any time to flee before the water came rushing in.

Eduardo Vargas was awoken by the sound of neighbors banging on his door and quickly fled with his family amid the sound of people crying in panic. They climbed up a small mountain to safety before their home destroyed.

Returning to the site Saturday, he said there is, 'Nothing left. But thank God we have our lives.'

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos visited the site of the disaster and declared a state of emergency on Saturday

At least five houses were in ruins after being buried by the landslide of part of a hill in the area of ​​Auquisamaña Bajo, in the South of La Paz. The mayor of La Paz, Luis Revilla, reported that initial reports dismiss personal injury.

Fire, Mayor and Police personnel worked in the area and laid a security fence. The electric power was cut because the collapse also took electric wiring poles.

The earth movement persisted past 16.30. The neighbors attribute the fact to the movement of earth in the high part and to a filtration.

National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said the landslide was caused by a combination of rain and the condition of slopes with many settlements.

He said seven people had been killed, two injured seriously and two received minor injuries.

A search and rescue team had evacuated the casualties

Indonesian authorities have released the names of those killed in the landslide.

All the victims from Songan were Indonesian. One family lost a 33-year-old woman, her seven-year-old daughter and one-year-old son.

"Landslides happen almost every year in Bali and cost lives," Mr Sutopo said. "Spatial planning must be enforced. Public education must be intensified."

Four fatalities also occurred in Awan and one in Sukawana. Both are also villages in the regency of Bangli.

Mr Sutopo said extreme rain, with 145 millimetres in one day, had occurred in the regency of Karangasem on Wednesday.

He said heavy rain was predicted to continue in Bangli, Jembrana, Buleleng, Tabanan, Gianyar and Badung in Bali until Saturday.

"People are encouraged to be vigilant of landslides, floods and tornados," he said.

The Indonesian Red Cross, the military, police and volunteers were on site providing emergency care .

"All victims have been successfully evacuated," Mr Sutopo said.

(VIDEO) Landslide Makes Wilder Ridge Road go Bye-Bye

http://https://twitter.com/surveyoron/status/829801937398697984?ref...

A landslide near Honeydew has completely washed away a massive chunk of concrete formerly known as Wilder Ridge Road.

Kym Kemp’s coverage of the slide on February 3, shows photos of the road cracking and bucking in the area. But the road appeared to be mostly intact.

New Video Tweeted out by Humboldt County Surveyor Ronald Garton this afternoon shows that the slide has since washed the stretch of roadway right into a nearby creek.

Humboldt County Public works closed this road prior to the most recent slide.

Check out the road’s current condition in the gnarly footage posted above.

Homes abandoned after landslide in San Mateo County, California.

Three homes have had to be abandoned after a landslide at La Honda in San Mateo County, California this week. Home owners started to notice cracks in walls on Monday 23 January 2017, which grew during the next two days, till the road beneath the properties buckled on Wednesday 25 January. The properties have been red tagged (declared unsafe for habitation) by local authorities, leaving the homeowners unclear as to their future.

The La Honda area is notoriously prone to landslips, which have apparently been happening for the last few thousand years, despite the overall relief of the area being  quite low. These typically involve blocks of topsoil moving downslope after rainfall events, rather than deeper rock-events triggered by the state's complex seismic situation.
This week's incident happened after several weeks of heavy rainfall and winter storms that have affected much of California, with almost a meter of rain having fallen in the La Honda area already this month, and states of emergency being declared in 50 of the state's 58 counties. Landslides are a common problem after severe weather events, as excess pore water pressure can overcome cohesion in soil and sediments, allowing them to flow like liquids. Approximately 90% of all landslides are caused by heavy rainfall.

California has been battered by a succession of Pacific storms this winter, bringing widespread flooding and triggering a number of landslip and subsidence events. This is due to exceptionally high temperatures over the Pacific Ocean off the coast of the state this year due to a La Niña weather system over the southern Pacific; ocean storms form due to heating of air over the sea, as the air is heated the the air pressure drops and the air rises, causing new air to rush in from outside the forming storm zone. If this zone is sufficiently large, then it will be influenced by the Coriolis Effect, which loosely speaking means the winds closer to the equator will be faster than those further away, causing the storm to rotate, clockwise in the northern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the southern hemisphere.

Whilst the high winds associated these storms is extremely dangerous, the real danger from such storms is often the flooding. Each millibar drop in air pressure can lead to a 1 cm rise in sea level, and large storms can be accompanied by storm surges several meters high. This tends to be accompanied by high levels of rainfall, caused by water picked up by the storm while still at sea, which can lead to flooding, swollen rivers and landslides; which occur when waterlogged soils on hill slopes lose their cohesion and slump downwards, over whatever happens to be in their path.

 The approximate location of the January 2017 La Honda landslip. Google Maps.
The La Niña weather system is the opposite of the El Niño weather system, in which unusually cold surface temperatures spread across the equatorial Pacific from the upwelling zone on the South American coast. This traps warm water from the western Pacific, preventing it from spreading east and warming the central Pacific. This leads to lower evaporation over the (cooler) east Pacific, leading to low rainfall on the west coast of South America, and higher evaporation over the (warmer) west Pacific, leading to higher rainfall over East and Southeast Asia and northern Australia.

This also leads to a breakdown in surface circulation in the North Pacific, which generally rotates clockwise, so that the same body of water stays off the coast of California, where it is constantly warmed by the Sun, leading to high levels of evaporation and onshore winds that bring high rainfall and flood events to the state.
