"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. "

Indonesia landslides kill 11 including infant twins

September 28, 2020

Two 10-month-old twins were among at least 11 people killed in landslides across an Indonesian city early on Monday, a search and rescue officer said. 

Several houses were buried in four separate locations around Tarakan on Borneo island after hours of heavy rain and strong winds. 

Five children were among the dead while four other people were rescued alive.    

"The heavy rain and strong wind triggered landslides in several locations at almost the same time and some people could not save themselves," local search and operation chief Amiruddin, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, told AFP on Monday.

"Among the victims we retrieved the body of a father and his 10-month-old twin boys," he added.

At least 19 homes were damaged across Tarakan.

Fatal landslides and flash floods are very common across the Indonesian archipelago, where seasonal downpours are frequent and relentless.

Dozens of people died in July after flash floods and landslides hit part of South Sulawesi province. 

Indonesia's disaster agency has estimated that 125 million Indonesians -- nearly half the country's population -- live in areas at risk of landslides.

Landslide traps over 1,000 pilgrims in Munsiyari

September 1 2020

The residents mostly belong to the Johari tribe and are predominantly farmers

Over 1,000 people who had returned to their villages in Munsiyari of Pithoragarh district in Uttarakhand for a yearly religious ritual have got stranded for the past six days because of rain-triggered landslides.

The residents of 13 villages leave home and stay with relatives in the plains during the monsoon months because rain and landslides cut off these areas, earning them the name of “migration villages”. However, they return for two days during this period for Nandashtami, or the worship of the Nanda Devi mountains.

This time, the residents of the 13 villages, including Tolalwa, Bilju, Rilkot, Martoli, Burfu, Chhirkani, Ralam, Milam, Panchhu and Ganghar, had returned on August 25 for the two-day rituals that began the next day.

Some people who began leaving the villages on August 26 itself after completing the rituals early informed the authorities in Pithoragarh that over 1,000 people would no longer be able to return as landslides had started. The residents mostly belong to the Johari tribe and are predominantly farmers.

Pankaj Brijlal, the panchayat chief of Dummar village 40km downhill, said: “I got the message from some people who had left the villages immediately after the first day of the puja on August 26 that over 1,000 people wouldn’t be able to return because all connecting roads had been damaged because of rain and landslides. I have informed the local authorities and they have promised to repair the roads by Wednesday.”

“I am in touch with the people trapped there over cell phone, although the connectivity is very poor,” he added.

Mahesh Ram, an engineer in the public works department, said: “Labourers have been sent to repair and clear the routes and we hope that it will be done within two days.” 

Located in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, Nanda Devi is the second highest mountain in India after Kanchenjunga.

August 31 2020

Visitors have been urged to stay away from part of the Jurassic Coast after a huge cliff fall which sent tonnes of rock onto a beach.


The warning comes after people were seen getting close to, and even clambering on, the rocks which came crashing down onto the coast between Hive Beach and Freshwater Beach, Burton Bradstock.

Local residents say visitors to the coast are unaware of the dangers and do not realise that cliff falls can happen at any time.

Recent heavy rainfall has made cliffs along unstable and further rockfalls are likely.

Geologists have previously warned that the Jurassic Coast’s cliffs ‘remain totally unpredictable.’

The spot where the rocks fell on Saturday around 6.30am is close to where holidaymaker Charlotte Blackman, 22, was tragically killed by a rockfall in 2012 as she walked along the beach.

Rescuers raced to Burton Bradstock on Saturday due to fears people may be trapped under the rocks. Firefighters were called to help police as there were concerns people may have been underneath the rubble.

Nothing was found however people were advised to contact the police if they believe someone they know may have been on the beach at that time.

West Bay Coastguard Rescue Team were also at the scene. They liaised with the other emergency services, and took photos and grid references of both sides of the cliff fall which were sent to Solent Coastguard.

Cynthia Justham, from Burton Bradstock, said she saw people climbing on the rocks a few hours after they came crashing down and said it just wasn’t worth the risk.

Mrs Justham said it was one of the biggest rockfalls she had seen since living in the area, with rocks reaching about a third of the way up the cliff.

She said: “We often see people sitting right under these cliffs.

“The National Trust (which manages the site) do their best to warn people, but quite often get ignored or abused. People seem to think they will get a warning when rockfalls are about to happen.”

She added: “It makes me feel physically sick when I see young children and families sitting directly under the cliffs. We won’t even walk along to Freshwater at low tide as the falls often reach into the sea.”

Dorset Council said it was a ‘substantial’ rockfall and said recent heavy rain has made cliffs along Dorset’s coastline unstable.

The authority said: “Rock falls can happen at any time. Stay away from cliff edges and the tops of cliffs. Dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard in any coastal emergency.”

A spokesman for Bridport Fire Station said: “One appliance from Bridport was mobilised to Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock after reports of a cliff fall. The police were in attendance and required our specialist equipment to ascertain whether any casualties might be underneath.

“Crews carried out a visual inspection and used a thermal imaging camera to check for any possible casualties around the edge. Nothing was found.

“The coastguard also attended and the incident was handed back to the police.”

The spokesman added: “If you have concerns and believe someone you know may have been on the beach at that time please call 101 and report it to the police.

“Please keep away from the cliffs and do not climb over the rock fall.

“We have had a lot of rain and strong stormy seas battering the cliffs making them very unstable.

“Cliff falls can happen at anytime without warning.

“Enjoy the the bank holiday weekend and stay safe.”
