"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. "

Massive landslide covers Highway 1 in southern Big Sur (May20)

 http://www.montereyherald.com/article/NF/20170522/NEWS/170529949

Big Sur >> Caltrans said Monday its unclear how long Highway 1 in southern Big Sur will remain closed after a landslide covering between a quarter and a half mile brought millions of cubic yards of dirt and rock down the hillside at Mud Creek on Saturday.

According to Caltrans spokeswoman Susana Cruz, there are five active landslides in the area, which is about 9 miles north of the southern Monterey County border. It’s believed four of the slides came down together at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Springs in the area keep the soil muddy, she said.

“There was so much saturation and so much weight,” Cruz said..."

Landslide halts Amtrak’s Seattle-Portland trains, adding to West Coast rail stoppage (May 5)
http://www.seattletimes.com/life/travel/landslide-halts-amtraks-sea...

Hoping to take the train south from Seattle? Right now, you just can’t get there from here.

Amtrak suspended its Amtrak Cascades train service between Seattle and Portland early Friday due to a landslide on the tracks. BNSF Railway, which owns the tracks, has placed a 48-hour moratorium on their use, suspending rail traffic on the route through Saturday, May 6.

Debbie Buchwach, of Tualatin, Ore., said her daughter, Lauren Brown, 23, and friend Jasper Owens, of Washougal, were on the train bound for Seattle Thursday evening when it stopped south of Olympia and sat for about four hours before arriving at the Olympia station around 10:45 p.m. From there, Brown and Owens caught an Uber ride to their destination, the Crypticon convention in SeaTac. The Uber ride cost $90, $20 more than the cost of their two train tickets to Seattle.

Friday, Amtrak arranged for bus transportation for ticketed passengers. Between Seattle and Portland buses were available for Trains 507, 508, 509, 513 and 516, an Amtrak official said. On Saturday, buses are available as an alternative for all scheduled trains on the route. Normal rail operations continue north of Seattle and south of Portland to Eugene, Ore.

Meanwhile, a service cancellation of the Coast Starlight train between Seattle and Los Angeles is expected to continue through mid-May because of bridge damage that occurred as a result of a freight train derailment near Redding, California, on April 25. The Coast Starlight is operating according to its normal schedule between Los Angeles and Sacramento only...."

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.'

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
