Virgen mudslide video - probably the best ever debris flow video
Heavy rainfall hit the village of Virgen in Tirol, Austria about two weeks ago causing powerful mudflow.
This remarkable video catches the speed and power of these mudflows remarkably well. Note also the pulsing behaviour that they show, which is characteristic of these types of landslides, and also the very long wavelength standing waves that the flows created.
Dave Petley,Wilson Professor of Hazard and Risk in the Department of Geography at Durham University in the United Kingdom, who posted this video on his TheLandslideBlog, points that this is probably the best ever debris flow video. We must agree on that.
