    jade mining tailings massive land slide
    Myanmar
    dozens washed away
    watch the full 5 minutes you can see survivors swimming in it trying to save themselves from the fast flowing river
    if they survived. unlikely they probably drown after another few minutes

    That's incredible ^^ There's just no warning, and it takes everyone by surprise.

    keep in mind when your dealing with large populations in both modern 1st world and agrarian 3rd world
    you get disaster tourists in both
    those who go toward tsunamis & land slides
    some of the videos you can see people laughing at the landslide as it kills people.

    mad world


    note additionally only recently despite government attempts in the previous USA administration to shut them down
    now developing are satellites that can scan these things

    but land is huge money and equally land boundary and ownership issues
    connects to government core housing policy

    proper satellite use could scan these areas and rate their risks then move the citizens to new land given to them for free where they can have a new house built for them for free

    which political groups would oppose that ?


    so you can clearly see there is massive money invested in making sure these events cant be predicted
    all for cash
    but the science is right there waiting to be used & in some cases its in orbit being used for other things



    100% !
    quick note your original video land slip slow slide etc
    northern European countrys including Russia will probably face this issue as land melts and causes water layers to be created under semi-flat areas where water may build up as permafrost melts
    considerably damaging when matched with key buildings placed on flat areas
    fuel tanks electrical systems supply buildings etc
    having a few hectares move side sways several meters while looking magical
    would cut and destroy critical infrastructure which may have a vast area of critical reliance on in more wider land areas specifically colder climate zones

    remember the usa government and republican party and its leaders have been spending tens of millions of dollars to claim climate change is fake.

    Fascinating excellent documentary by PBS on Oso Land Slide

    In 2014, a wall of mud engulfed Highway 530 in Snohomish County killing 43 people.

    this is the geology (MUST WATCH)
    this is the specialist scientist who studied it
    he explains it in detail in the PBS documentary
    this is the short of him explaining the basics of the landslide if you don't want all the back story of the over all event
    PBS ink goes to the PBS documentary which is exceptionally good
