"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 closes section of Highway 194 in Avery County

Posted: Jul 16, 2013 12:13 AM CDTUpdated: Jul 16, 2013 11:06 AM CDT


An estimated two mile section of Highway 194 in Avery County, North Carolina is closed after a landslide caused a section of the road to collapse Monday night.
A spokesperson for the Avery County Department of Emergency Communications told News Channel 11 that Highway 194 - known locally as The Three Lane - was heavily damaged and impassable between Elk Park and Newland. It will be closed indefinitely. 
The road closure is from the upper entrance of Blevins Creek Road to the intersection of Highway 19E, the primary road from Avery and surrounding counties into Northeast Tennessee.
A large section of bank next to highway 194 gave way. Responders at the scene said there are indications the highway is starting to buckle.  They also said the landslide is close to 100 yards in length next to the highway. 
We have been told at least one home has been impacted....sending the occupants to the hospital with minor injuries.
"This is going to be a traffic nightmare for a while," the spokesperson said.

 North Carolina State Police was on scene early Tuesday assisting with traffic control as were NCDOT engineers.
All large trucks traveling from Tennessee toward Newland on Highway 19E will not be allowed past the Highway 194 interchange and will have to stay on Highway 19E bypassing the affected area.
All cars and light trucks will be detoured onto Blevins Creek Road.   Motorists will need to use caution because it, too, has been flood damaged, a dispatcher said.
"It's a major deal," an emergency spokesperson said.

8 Saskatoon families asked to leave homes over slope failure

Posted: Jul 12, 2013 6:38 PM ET

Last Updated: Jul 12, 2013 7:18 PM ET

Eight Saskatoon families are being asked to voluntarily leave their homes because of concerns about slope failure in the area.

Officials from the city said the homes affected are along 11th Street East. Notices were being issued Friday afternoon.

Murray Totland, Saskatoon's city manager, called the shifting soil a public safety concern.

The city said increased movement was noted recently in the slope between 11th Street East and Saskatchewan Crescent East.

"We consider [the movement] alarming," Mike Gutek, Saskatoon's manager of infrastructure, said Friday. "Last year we were talking about the slope moving in terms of millimetres per day. We're now talking about the slope moving centimetres per day."

The residents most affected by the slope failure have been kept informed, Gutek said, and more meetings — for all residents in the area — were set for next week.

Saskatoon has been evaluating the condition of the slope with a consulting engineer. Homeowners were also being advised to get their own advice.

Gutek said the people being asked to evacuate their homes should check with an engineer before returning.

The city's fire department was asking affected residents to register with them, so they can account for people.

A command bus will also be set up in the neighbourhood.

The city said mandatory evacuations could yet be issued.

The shifting ground has been a concern for over a year, most recently in the spring.

Monitoring this week revealed what the city called a serious increase in the rate of movement of the earth.

They said addressing the issue would not be easy and residents could be out of their homes for months.

Massive Mudslide Washes Away Cars in Colorado (July 10)

A driver has filmed the moment his car was swept away in a Colorado mudslide.

"Oh my god," John Schroyer said as he filmed from inside his car as it was carried off the road by the fast-moving flood waters in Colorado.

Mr Schroyer, who works for local newspaper The Gazette, had arrived at Manitou Springs in Colorado to capture the scene before he was swept away.

He was forced to climb out of his car's window to safety.

"The flood waters kept going and going, and I was stuck in my car for probably half an hour, until I climbed out of the window onto my car's roof and jumped to solid ground," he said.

The mudslide caused chaos after it shut down the highway for almost three hours, while motorists were left stunned as up to 25 vehicles were swept off the road of stuck in the mudflow.

The landslide occurred in Zhongxing town on Wednesday morning. More than 100 rescuers with rescue dogs were at the scene, Xinhua news agency said.

The landslide followed days of torrential rain across parts of China that has caused floods in some areas.

On Tuesday, a bridge in Sichuan's Jiangyou collapsed, with at least 12 people missing.

Zhongxing is in Dujiangyan city, one of the places badly hit by the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.

Impassable Roads

The Zetas have warned that roads will likely be impassable by the time of the pole shift, if not before. Travel by rail will be blocked by twisting track. Travel by plane or ship will be made hazardous by an erratic compass and guidance systems. And travel by road will be blocked by dropping bridges and buckling roads. 

ZetaTalk Warning 12/27/2003: We have consistently warned that waiting until the week or rotation stoppage to travel to safe locations is not wise, for several reasons. The current earthquake damage, occurring not only along fault lines but in the centers of plates where a torque occurs, is but the barest taste of what is to come. Think of what transportation entails, and the weak links in the chain. Gas line breaks will explode along streets and destroy whole refineries suddenly, creating unexpected emergencies. No passage through the flames, no passage through the danger zone likely to explode. Loss of power results in traffic lights not working, gas pumps not working, toll gates not working, and each instance creating a backlog that prevents any single traveler from success.

For roadway travel, the weak links are bridges, tunnels, and the roadway itself. Bridges will be the first to go, twisting off their footings or pulled apart into collapse, with tunnels impassable. This reduces travel to routes that will become clogged passage points, everyone taking the route that does not include overpasses or tunnels, so the road jam makes progress impossible. Are those thinking of going to safe places after rotation stops planning to do so on foot? Ships do not encounter bridges and tunnels, but water is more unpredictable. It will recede from moorings, stranding boats in the mud, or reveal sandbars where none are on the maps. And due to magnetic flux, what guide to use in the volcanic gloom enshrouded sky? Air travel, at a time when guiding systems will all falter, has greater risks because any failure results in a fall and certain death. Air fields will have their pavement buckling too, as with roadways, so landings results in a holocaust.

Landslide Forces I-80 to Close in California (July 2)

Interstate 80 was shut down for hours in both directions near the California-Nevada state line after rocks and mud flowed onto the freeway.

The California Department of Transportation says Tuesday's landslide was the size of a football field, with mud and debris 3 to 8 inches deep.

Several motorists were caught in the mud but Caltrans crews were able to get them out before they began clearing the mess.

One passenger in a car who took cell phone video could be heard saying, "The freeway's gone, the freeway's gone. Concrete and everything!"

Mud and rock even made it down to Union Pacific railroad tracks beside the Truckee River, leaving a short section covered in mud and wood debris.

Cal Trans spokesperson Deanna Shoopman said the muddy debris covering 80 was about the size of a football field -- 300 feet long and 6 inches deep.

Landslides Strand 1500 in Tibet (July 5)
Although reported as "rain-triggered mudslides", the pictured excavators are clearly not removing mud but rather crushed rock.

Over 1,500 people and 300 vehicles were stranded after landslides halted traffic in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.

Two landslides, which occurred successively after 9:30pm (local time) on Friday, stopped traffic on a road section in Bomi's Niutagou region, rescuers said on Saturday.

The landslides blocked over 1,500 people and 300 vehicles on the road, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

There were no reports of casualties so far. The debris flow, about 12,000 cubic meters, covered a road section of about 120 meters.

Rescuers and large equipment have been sent to clear the road.

Landslides Kills 1,000 in Indian Himalayas (June 21)

India's military battled to reach villages and towns cut off by flash floods and landslides in the country's north as officials warned at least 1,000 people may have been killed.

Helicopters and close to 10,000 soldiers have been deployed to rescue tourists and pilgrims stranded after floods caused by torrential monsoon rains hit the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand at the weekend.

More than 33,100 people have so far been rescued, as the military takes advantage of clearer weather, but another 50,400 are still stranded, the Home Ministry said in a statement.

"Our priority is to take out the children and women first by helicopter," said Ajay Chadha, chief of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police.

"We hope to rescue all the living and then start the scavenging task," Chadha said in New Delhi, referring to the task of finding the dead.

Houses, buildings and vehicles have collapsed or been swept away by overflowing rivers and landslides, while bridges and narrow roads leading to pilgrimage towns have also been destroyed, officials said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launched an online appeal for funds, asking "all citizens of India to stand with our distressed fellow countrymen" and "donate generously".

Torrential rains four and a half times as heavy as usual have hit Uttarakhand, known as the "Land of the Gods", where Hindu shrines and temples built high in the mountains attract many pilgrims.

"There are some 3,000 of us stuck in Gangotri (a pilgrimage site) for the past few days and there is no food, no drinking water or assurances from the government," a pilgrim, Parwinder Singh, told CNN-IBN by telephone.

"It is very difficult to move from here," he added.

At least 138 people have been confirmed dead across Uttarakhand and two neighbouring states also hit by floods and landslides, officials said, but shrine authorities warned the toll was more than 1,000.

"We estimate more than 1,000 people have died as unattended bodies are scattered all around," said Ganesh Godiyal, chairman of a trust in charge of several shrines in the pilgrimage towns of Kedarnath and Badrinath.

Over the border in Nepal, floods and landslides also triggered by the monsoon have left at least 39 people dead mostly in remote parts of the country, officials said.

The military operation was focused on the worst-hit Kedarnath temple area, as families of the missing faced an anxious wait in Uttarakhand capital's Dehradun.

Some of those rescued told of scrambling to higher ground to escape raging waters, only to watch helplessly as buildings, cars and even dead bodies were swept away before them.

"There is nothing left in Kedarnath now except the temple," pilgrim Sitaram Sukhatiahe told the Press Trust of India after arriving by helicopter in Dehradun.

One of those stranded was Indian cricket star Harbhajan Singh, who was attempting to reach a Sikh pilgrimage site but had to take refuge in a police station.

"Some people are saying that we're stuck but I wouldn't say that we're stuck, I'd say we've been saved by God," said the spin bowler, who was later flown out of the flood-hit area by military chopper.

"With the kind of rainstorm we witnessed, anything could have happened. Many people lost their lives," the cricketer said.

Figures for the death toll have varied considerably, underscoring the difficulty of reaching isolated areas. An Uttarakhand state lawmaker, Shaila Rani Rawat, put the death toll at 2,000, but disaster management officials could not confirm this.

Nearly 10,000 soldiers along with 13 teams from the National Disaster Response Force have been deployed for the rescue and relief effort, the government said.

Indian paramilitary officers have been building rope and log bridges across raging rivers to try to reach those stranded.

Relief camps have been set up to house evacuated residents and tourists. Some 22 helicopters are ferrying many of those rescued to the camps, while 14 tonnes of food and relief aid has been dropped in remote areas, the air force and the government said.

The monsoon, which covers the subcontinent from June to September, usually brings some flooding. But the heavy rains arrived early this year, catching many by surprise and exposing the country's lack of preparedness.
