Earthflow in Russia - rare footage

Earthflow in Russia - rare footage

Brave Alexander Giniyatullin captured the moment an earthflow slowly moved over a road, crushing trees and crashing down pylons. This all happened earlier in April 2015 in the Kemerovo Region of Russia, between Novokuznetsk and Bolshaya Talda and movements like this are rarely captured on video.

An earthflow is sort of a landslide which moves down a slope and is sometimes started by heavy rainfall and can travel from 0.11 to 12.4 mph.

Here is the video but listen to it happening :shock:

Good video of a naturally occurring event that is very rare.

Very scary but would be a once in a lifetime show for the lucky film maker.
I am innocent, are you?

What a creepy noise. Honestly I would have fled well before the film maker did. He seemed to be enjoying the site.

It is a freaky thing mind you. I would have been frightened and ran away as quickly as possible.
