Land slide



A landslide caught on a traffic camera. You start to catch your breath about the time the first clump of 30 foot tall trees crosses the road like a forest of Ents. Pretty horrifying, but cool to watch.

the video is not from a traffic camera, but a professional camera w/ infrared placed by a geological crew less than an hour before the hillside gave way.

Why does a traffic cam have sound? Why panning until it starts?

its not a traffic cam. this was in japan. they knew it was going to happen soon. they shut down the road when land motion sensors showed it was dangerous. so they set up a camera. a few hours later the land slide took place. (no traffic cam..)

Damn that was intense! You forget about the mass of the earth when your standing on it...

Finally proof that when a tree falls in the forest & nobody is around it does make a sound.

This is a lie. It is simply a scale model of a hillside and road. Watch the electrical poles when the lines start to snap, so fake.

It always happens. The same stupid moron saying everything is fake. The only fake here is you.

Well, I am a physicist, and the way that pole is moving is unnatural. It appears to be a small model. An actual pole of that size would move differently because of it's much larger mass. It is possible, however, that this video was sped up, which MIGHT account for that.

You can tell this was photoshopped.
