Matter Valley | Randa Rock Slide

WI_ch029.jpg

This landslide occurred in two main stages in spring 1991. During both stages, the material was released over periods of several hours. The event led to major damage to the infrastructure, but nobody was directly harmed as a well-designed monitoring and early warning system was in place.
