The Santuario di Gallivaggio (Sanctuary of Gallivaggio), close to the Swiss border, and the surrounding town had been evacuated for several days and there were no reports of injuries.

Video: Rockslide on U.S. Highway 64 in Tennessee
Amazing video of a rockslide as it happened yesterday along U.S. Highway 64 in the Ocoee River gorge in Tennessee. TDOT crews had almost finished removing rockslide debris from an event earlier in the day when a second slide occurred, blocking the road again. That looks like a pretty planar joint set dipping right into the roadway and everything was wet from the recent rains. Click through for the video.
