"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. "

Dundee Landslide Closes Streets, Over 100 Evacuated (Dec 30)
More than 100 people had to be evacuated from more than 40 flats after a major landslide caused a wall to collapse in Dundee.

Gardens and patios disappeared as tons of earth and rubble tumbled down from the rear of tenements in Gardner Street, crashing into flats below on Lochee Road.

A grassy area at the back of the homes was destroyed as a retaining wall disappeared at around 4pm yesterday, with earth and rubble strewn down around 50 metres of the slope and piling up against the Lochee Road flats.

No one was injured, however residents in some 24 flats at 2, 4 and 6 Gardner Street were hurriedly told by police they had to leave their properties immediately after the blocks of tenements “wobbled” following the landslide.

Meanwhile flat-dwellers at 175 to 179 Lochee Road were also removed from around 20 homes by police after feeling the impact of the mud striking their building.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 4pm and the City Engineer surveyed the damage and was due to return today to further assess the situation.

Police immediately closed off Gardner Street at the junction of Loons Road and Rankine Street at Lochee Road, along with connecting side streets and diverted traffic away from the area.

However although emergency vehicles, including fire tenders, police and Scotland Gas Networks vehicles lined a section of Lochee Road, the main route between the city and Lochee was kept fully open.

Evacuated residents were assisted by Dundee City Council officers who were on hand to arrange any alternative accommodation and offered an emergency rest centre. However the affected residents were able to make their own arrangements.

Roy O’Kane, who owns the basement flat nearest to the landslide, said: “I’m just amazed it wasn’t the whole building, all that’s left is the patio and it’s squint.

“After that it’s just a gaping hole. We’re talking ten feet here, if it had been any further in, then the stairwell out the back would have gone and people wouldn’t have been able to get down.

“It’s really scary and I’m still in shock.”

Landslide threatens 40 homes in East Jerusalem
Published yesterday (updated) 13/12/2013 19:46
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Landslides occurred Friday in an East Jerusalem neighborhood as a result of heavy snow accumulation, threatening at least 40 nearby houses located on lands previously weakened by Israeli authorities' excavations nearby, a local group said.

Landslides led to the degradation of hillsides in the Ain al-Lowza neighborhood of Silwan, opening cracks and threatening 40 nearby houses with potential destruction, the Wadi Helwa Information Center said.

A statement from the group said previous excavations by Israel to build a wall through the area have caused extensive damage to the ground, and the effects of the storm have exacerbated the negative effects.

The majority of the landslides occurred in a large plot of land owned by local resident Abu Tayeh where 40 homes have been built.

Abu Tayeh said it was the first time he had experienced such a severe problem on his land, blaming Israeli authorities for failing to complete work they had started on a neighborhood wall.

"The Israeli municipality does not weigh the value of people's lives," he said. 

"They are responsible for causing this collapse, and we demand the completion of the construction of the fence."

Boulder the size of an elephant crushes entire house and instantly kills two inhabitants in Utah landslide

  • Two storey wooden building was reduced to pile of splinters by huge rock
  • It came rolling down a nearby valley after a landslide near Rockville, Ohio
  • The unsuspecting victims were inside the property when it was flattened

By Aaron Sharp


Two people have been killed after a rock slide sent a giant boulder rolling down a valley and onto the roof of their two storey home.

The house in Rockville, Utah, was completely demolished by the rock, which crushed the entire wooden structure of the building, leaving behind a scene of complete devastation.

When emergency services arrived at the scene, shortly after 5pm yesterday, they found the splintered remains of the home buried under the weight of the gigantic boulder which stood at a height of around 15ft.

Devastation: Two people were inside the house which was at the bottom of a steep incline close to one of the area's major highways

The town is located on the main highway through Zion National Park, NBC station KSL in Salt Lake City reported.

Rockville’s mayor, Dan McGuire, told local press that the earth close to the road gave way causing a landslide which carried tons of soil and rocks on to the home at the bottom of a steep incline.

McGuire said the house 'just flattened out' when the debris hit.

Emergency crews responded to the slide but their work has been hampered by the dangerous conditions overhead.

Rescue efforts were suspended until this morning because of dangerous conditions.

A similar incident in 2002 saw another home destroyed but no one was harmed.

Recovery: Emergency crews began working at the scene but were forced to call off their search due to the risk of further falling debris

Nine killed by landslide on Indonesia's Sumatra island

Posted 8 hours 16 minutes ago

Indonesian villagers walk the area after heavy rain swept and killed nine people in Karo

Nine people were killed by a landslide on Indonesia's Sumatra island on Saturday, officials have confirmed.

"Heavy rains from Saturday evening till night triggered a landslide in the hilly area of Berastagi sub-district in North Sumatra," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency.

"Nine people were killed," he said, including four children aged between two and 10.

Local military official Meyer Putong, who was involved in rescue operations, said nobody was reported missing.

"They lived close to the river so the rush of rain water last night broke the riverbanks. The victims were either buried under their houses or swept by the surging waters," he added.

Indonesia is regularly affected by deadly floods and landslides during its wet season, which lasts for around six months.

Environmentalists blame logging and a failure to reforest denuded land for exacerbating flooding.
