Italian Landslide 16th Feb 2010

Posted: February 18, 2010 in landslide, translational, USGS

A spectacular landslide was caught on camera in the Southern Italian town of Maierato.
It is believe heavy rain may have propogated the slide, which seems to be a translational earthslide.
The 200 or so residents were able to evacute the area and even though the slide passed through the town there were no injuries.
