Silvretta | Furtschöltal with traces of debris flow

WI_at001_31_512.jpg

This photo was taken one week after a chunk of rock of approx. 1 million cubic metres had detached from the S peak of Fluchthorn. The rock avalanche impacted a damp area with some small lakes, resulting in a splash of debris and water reaching the Furtschöl valley, impounding a lake (central background) and producing a debris flow downstream. The event caused no significant damage.
