"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 Creates Cliff Near Vancouver BC (Oct 13)

A landslide has closed down a popular hiking area near the University of British Columbia leaving behind a 600-foot-high cliff.

The slide happened Sunday afternoon in an area of Pacific Spirit Park commonly known as Trail 5, in between the university campus and the slopes that lead into the water below.

The RCMP says no one was hurt in the landslide near the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver, but they're asking the public to stay clear of the area.

The Mounties say the scene is still an active slide area and has been barricaded to prevent people from accessing the site.

Police said it will work with the Greater Vancouver Regional District to block access to the area until a comprehensive analysis can be made and a permanent barrier put in place.

=============================================================================

2mm of rain measured in Vancouver BC in the 10 days prior to the event.

Hundreds of landslides recorded in Chin State [Chinland Guardian; 7 October, 2013; Written by  Thawng Zel Thang]

07 October 2013: At least 768 landslides occurred across Chin State between 21 August and 11 September 2013, according to the Chin State government's statistics.

The Ministry of Transport said that its record showed the number of landslides happening only on roads constructed by the government, not by local communities.

It added that the number also included minor incidents that didn't block or completely destroy the roads but posed risks to future landslides.

Ngun San Aung, Minister for Transport, said in the Chinland Post: "The cost of repair and maintenance is estimated to be high. But its details can be revealed at the end of the year."

According to the Chinland Post, the highest number of landslides had been recorded on the Mindat-Matupi road, followed by the Hakha-Falam-Kalay and the Tedim-Tonzang-Taingen.

In Chin State, most of the roads connecting villages are constructed and maintained by local communities with financial contributions from the Chin diaspora. The number of landslides occurring on such roads is, of course, unknown.#

Penang Hill, Penang Malaysia

Hit by 13 landslides

By CHONG KAH YUAN and LOGEISWARY THEVADASS

A bird’s eye view of a hill slope where soil erosion had occurred at Solok Tanjung Bungah.

“GEORGE TOWN: At least 13 locations in and around Penang Hill were hit by landslides following several days of downpour.

Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari said soil erosion had occurred on several areas along the jeep trail, causing trees to be uprooted.

“Fortunately, there were no casualties. We advise the public to practise extreme caution when within the affected areas.

“The road at KM2.1 is intact and vehicles can pass through. However, half the road at KM4 has been damaged,” he said.

Zairil added that repair works would take about four months because of logistical problems.

“This problem has also resulted in the cost of the remedial works to escalate to RM1mil for each location,” he said. Zairil added that the area along KM2.5 had been cordoned off for safety reasons.

“Kebun Bunga assemblyman Cheah Kah Peng said the landslide was first detected on Sunday, but three major ones happened on Wednesday and Thursday.

“We will soon arrange a meeting with the residents and hikers who frequent KM2.5 (popularly known as Point 84) where there is a rest area,” said Cheah.

Meanwhile, residents in Tanjung Bungah are worried for their safety after several landslides also occurred there at around 11pm on Thursday.

A resident from a condominium, who was taking his usual morning walk in Solok Tanjung Bungah, said mounds of earth and a big boulder crashed down from the hill on Wednesday morning.

Another landslide occurred the following day.”

Fewer than 60 landslides are reported on an average year, according to the British Geological Survey (BGS), but in 2012 there were 176.

In December 2012 alone there were 75 incidents, and the phenomenon continued into 2013, with 56 occurring in January.

Scientists found that in the 12 months following June 2012, there were five times the average incidents.

Massive Landslide in Arunachal India

September 8, 2013

With improvement in the weather, the water level of major rivers in Eastern Arunachal showed a receding trend even as West and Upper Siang districts in the state remained cut off due to massive landslides triggered by torrential rain. Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on Saturday undertook an aerial survey of the affected areas accompanied by Chief Secretary Hari Krishna and Secretary, Disaster Management, Kapa Kholie, officials said on Sunday. Reports had poured in of the Noa Dihing River rising over danger level and inundating portions of Dumpani and four other villages under Diyun circle in Changlang district. Massive landslide in Arunachal due to rainfall, 2 districts remain cut off At least 13,246 people of eleven villages have been affected by the current wave of flood. Landing at Diyun, Tuki took first hand report of the situation from local Legislator C C Singpho and officials of the district administration, sources said. The swollen river has triggered landslides in at least seven villages while about 85 hectares have been submerged in five villages, they said. Another five villages are under danger of being affected if the river continued to be in spate or proper preventive measures are not taken up immediately, sources said. To a plea for adequate fund to tackle the situation urgently, the chief minister announced an amount of Rs 2.5 crore for emergency protection works, particularly at Dumpani village, and directed Secretary, Disaster Management, to release the same to the district administration by Monday. Meanwhile, the district administration has provided 10,000 gunny bags to villagers for erection of temporary embankments/bunds at vulnerable locations. At least ten families living near the river bank have been directed to shift to safer locations and necessary assistance is being provided to them for relocation. The chief minister also took an aerial survey of all affected areas at Namsai, Chowkham, Mahadevpur and Tezu in Lohit district, Roing and Dambuk in Lower Dibang Valley and Mebo and Pasighat areas in East Siang district. At Pasighat, he was apprised of the flood situation by the district administration officials. The rising waters of Siang River have been causing concern for the people of the area and an alert has been sounded by the administration. An official of the Border Road Organization assured Tuki that the eroded approach to Siku Bridge on NH 52 between Pasighat and Mebo would be restored soon. While appealing to the people to remain vigilant, Tuki requested the Union Home Ministry to send a team to survey and assess the damages caused due to the flash floods. He also directed the district administrations to keep in stock enough ration items and medicines besides keeping men and machinery ready to tackle any eventuality
