This video shows a huge landslide appear to take out a portion of an entire mountain. It must have been a sight to behold…and the rumbling is quite ominous. The title of the video notes that it took place in Kyrgyzstan in September of 2020, but there is no other info. I also checked the Landslide Blog, my usual go-to resource for this type of thing. Unless I’m missing it, he doesn’t have any info on this landslide in recent posts. It’s possible I missed it, or the video is mislabeled and it took place earlier than September. If anyone knows more details on this one, drop me a note or leave a comment. Thanks to Jim Withiam for sharing this with me.
Geology.com pointed out a very nice PDF version of a Power Point presentation by the North Carolina Geologic Survey on their landslide hazard mapping efforts in western North Carolina. The presentation was dated August 1 of last year. The NCGS also has their landslide mapping products available for download, and those so inclined can download the GIS data sets as well.
