A 5,000 cubic meter rockfall is seen on cell phone video enveloping a 420 year old Italian church in dust, but the church and its bell tower miraculously escaped serious damage. 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.
Rockfall Protection Videos from G.T.S.
More videos! French Company G.T.S. has posted some great videos on rockfall protection systems on their YouTube channel. I don’t speak French, so I can’t give you any more info on the company (although their website looks like it has plenty of info!). But the videos cover the preparation of, drilling for, and installation or rockfall protection fences and barriers as well as a couple of general rockfall ones. They just have video with background music, so no worries about a language barrier. You can watch the installation video below.
