There was a big landslide in B.C. 9 days ago. The second biggest in Canadian recorded history.
It’s in a remote area a couple of hours northeast of Whistler, but one we drove by about 15 years ago.
How big you might ask? Forty millions cubic meters. How big is that? About 6 miles, by 1 mile by 10 feet deep.
It started here.
Everything brown you see is mud. The slide came down the valley from the bottom right. It hit the mountainside in the center and stripped it of trees. You’re looking at about 6 miles of mud filled valley above.
It then turned left and damned up the river valley for several hours.
It was in the middle of the night, but there were witnesses.
