WI_is219.jpg

This extremely mobile rock avalanche occurred in the morning of 7 July 2018. It travelled over a distance of 2.3 km, increasing its volume from approx. 7 million to more than 10 million cubic metres. One of the most striking features of this landslide, which widely spread over flat terrain, is its sharply bounded deposition area.
