A slow-moving landslide may not seem like a very dramatic natural disaster, but when it’s viewed in a time-lapse video, you can truly see the havoc it wreaks on the landscape. This eye-opening time-lapse shows a landslide breaking down over the span of 20 months between March 2013 and January 2015. The path of destruction is clear.
The flow tears trees from the ground and moves large rocks across the landscape – however, the intensity of the landslide wavers depending on the time of year. Over the winter months, temperatures cause the flow to freeze and almost come to halt, while warmer weather causes the flow to speed up dramatically once the ice melts.
