A landslide in Yosemite National Park on Wednesday damaged three cars in the parking lot of the Ahwahnee Hotel and left rocks, one the size of two SUV’s in the parking lot. Park officials evacuated the hotel as a precaution but no injuries were reported. Story at FresnoBee.com via USGS Recent Landslide Page. (Photo by Erik Skindrud, National Park Service)
An Italian farmer and his family had an unbelievably close call with some house-sized boulders. You have to see the pictures to believe it. The boulders were dislodged during a landslide on January 21 in Northern Italy. One of the boulders smashed through the barn and courtyard of the farm and cut a swath through their vineyard before stopping near a boulder from some previous rockfall / landslide event. That older boulder is even bigger, about the same size as the entire farmhouse and big enough to be seen on Google Earth! See below or download the KMZ file.
