"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. "

Landslide shuts down Marcos Highway

BAGUIO CITY — Marcos Highway, one of the main access roads leading up to Baguio City, was temporarily closed when a landslide hit a portion of the road in Barangay Poblacion, Tuba, Benguet, which also resulted to two injuries last 25 September.

According to the Tuba Municipal Police Station, victims Angelli Jen Federico Bagote, 17, and Dominador Molina Gallema, 34, sustained head injuries when the jeep they were riding hit a collapsed electric post that was felled by the rock slide.

Marcos Highway was closed to all types of vehicles as it was obstructed by the fallen soil boulders and the electric post, which personnel of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Cordillera together with the Benguet Electric Cooperative swept with clearing operations making the highway passable by Wednesday evening.

However, the rock slide caused the traffic leading to Baguio to slow down because of only one passable lane in Marcos Highway while Kennon Road remains closed to rehabilitation.

The DPWH recommended motorists going to and from Baguio to pass through either Naguilian Road or Quirino Highway, which are longer routes.

Norway mountain finally crumbles, no injuries or damage

September 6 2019

COPENHAGEN (AP) - The 50m-tall summit of southern Norway's Veslemannen mountain has crumbled and triggered a long-anticipated landslide that caused no injuries or damage.

Lars Harald Blikra of Norway's Water Resources and Energy Directorate told Norwegian broadcaster NRK "it's fantastic to know that the landslide is finally over", saying they had been waiting for it "for so many years".

Heavy rain caused late Thursday's (Sept 5) landslides in the Mannen mountain range. Rockslide risks there have been reported since 2014, leading the authorities to issue alerts for the area.

On Aug 30, it was again raised to its highest and, as a precaution, a nearby train line was closed and 11 people were evacuated for the 16th time.

The scale of the landslide was not immediately known.

Myanmar: At least 34 killed, scores feared missing in landslide

Torrential rainfall burst riverbanks across the country and coastal communities have been warned of higher tides.



At least 34 people were killed and scores feared missing after a landslide triggered by monsoon rains struck a village in eastern Myanmar on Friday, AFP reported. “We found 34 dead, and the search for dead bodies is still ongoing,” said local administrator Myo Min Tun.

A deluge of mud descended on Thae Pyar Kone village in Mon state on Friday (Aug. 9) , and washed out 16 homes and a monastery. Search and rescue teams worked through the night to find survivors and recover bodies from the sludge.

Officials believe that more than 80 people could still be missing.

Torrential rainfall burst riverbanks across the country and coastal communities have been warned of higher tides. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, around 89,000 people have been displaced by floods in recent weeks, although many have since been able to return home.

Residents waded out through waist-deep waters in eastern Bago region after the Sittaung river overflowed, and led to collapse of their homes.

VIDEO. Neuquén: impressive landslide in Villa La Angostura left the city isolated

JULY 23, 2019 - 18:46

The circulation on National Route 40 was closed due to the great fall of a hill on the side of the road. One person managed to capture the amazing event on video.

Villa La Angostura is going through one of the most critical moments in its history, since the lack of light and water now added isolation due to a landslide on km 2094 of Route 40, leaving the road to that locality impassable.

The impressive collapse of one of the hills next to the route was videotaped and viralized in moments. From this morning National Road works in place to remove the debris and enable the passage to the Seven Lakes Road, but they reported that the cut will be until further notice due to the magnitude of the event.

Mudslide threatens condos, forces some residents to evacuate in Harrison

Posted: 6:07 AM, Jun 16, 2019

HARRISON, Ohio — A mudslide forced residents to evacuate from their hilltop condos after heavy rains this weekend continued to erode part of the hillside behind them.

About 30 residents of the Legacy by Fisher Homes neighborhood near Heritage Square were forced out after 2:30 a.m. Sunday after the Harrison Fire Department evacuated the condos nearest to the mudslide.

"The neighbors next to us, it's at their patio," said Deanna Frey, a resident who was evacuated early Sunday morning. "So any more rain, it might go.

"They allowed us to come back to get our belongings, and now there's a condemned sign on our door," said Frey.

On Monday, remaining residents were told power was going to be shut off at noon, but it was still on at 12:30 p.m.

The condos are on top of a hill, and emergency units on scene said the ground they were built on is eroding. To make matters worse, utility lines were exposed.

Emergency units said they will stay on scene in case there is further erosion. They also have to wait for an engineer to assess the damage to the exposed utility lines.

Neighbors said there have been issues with mudslides since December, but heavy, continuous rains Saturday night caused it to get much worse.

"We have and continue to offer our expertise and service to aid the Condominium Association in their analysis of the situation and long-term solution," Fischer Homes said, in a written statement Sunday evening. "We remain concerned for those homeowners who were evacuated as a result of the heavy storms and subsequent erosion. Fischer Homes has built more than 24,000 homes over the past 39 years with our customers' best interests always at the forefront. We remain in contact with the Condominium Association to help guide them through the ultimate resolution."

Avalanche Strands Cyclists on Glacier Park’s Sun Road

It took eight hours for park staff to clear a path through a large avalanche to reach 13 cyclists on the far side

May 28, 2019

A rockslide and an avalanche near Triple Arches on the Going-to-the-Sun Road left 13 cyclists stranded for eight hours on Memorial Day.

Glacier National Park officials closed the Going-to-the-Sun Road above The Loop on May 27 after a separate rockslide came down on the road and prevented emergency vehicle travel. However, many cyclists were already above the rockslide when the closure was put into effect.

Later in the day, a large avalanche came down on the road at Triple Arches. The snow slide was caught on video by a number of visitors in the area.

No one was injured in either the rockslide or avalanche.


Two volunteer bike patrollers were in the area at the time of the slide and relayed a call for help to park dispatch and a team of more than a dozen park staff, including rangers and equipment operators, were mobilized. An avalanche forecaster with the U.S. Geological Survey was also called to the site.

After clearing the rockslide, and ensuring that the avalanche had stabilized, park staff began to clear a path through the avalanche to gain access to the stranded cyclists. The 13 cyclists were trapped on the other side of the slide for about eight hours. Park officials said they were cold, but otherwise in good spirits.

A number of visitors chose to cross the avalanche so that they could continue their ride to Logan Pass. Park officials said that behavior is strongly discouraged and could lead to significant injury. If you must cross an avalanche path as a last resort, use a spotter to watch for additional slide activity up the mountain and cross one at a time.

“If you see fresh snow on the side of the road or across the road, even if you are excited about your bike trip, turn around,” Chief Ranger Paul Austin said in a press release issued Tuesday. “Take responsibility for your safety and though disappointing, plan on heading out another day. Biking along the Going-to-the-Sun Road is not the same as an easy bike trip around town.”

Glacier reminds visitors that conditions change rapidly in the park. Always pack extra food, bring extra clothes, and learn about potential hazards that may exist in the area you plan to visit.

Late last week, plow crews on the west side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road reached the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. The east side crews are now working in the area of Siyeh Bend. Both crews will converge on the “Big Drift” in the coming days, a section of road just east of Logan Pass, that typically sees drifts of 40 to 80 feet deep.

Although plows are making quick work of snow in Glacier Park, it will still be at least a month before the Sun Road opens to vehicle traffic due to road construction. The park is conducting a number of pavement projects, including on the Sun Road, and the earliest the entire road will be open to vehicle traffic will be June 22.

As of May 28, the Sun Road was open to vehicle traffic between West Glacier and Avalanche on the west side and St. Mary to Jackson Glacier Overlook on the east side. Hiker and biker access is currently limited to The Loop on the west side as plow crews continue to work on the alpine sections of highway.
