00:06 Hey friends! Isn’t the weather just lovely?

00:09 Wait a minute…is it me or is the ground moving?

00:15 Be careful, its a Landslide!

00:19 Let me tell you about this natural disaster!

00:23 Zoom in!

00:26 When the upper mass of the soil gets dislocated from the lower layers..

00:30 ..and travels down-slope.

00:32 It is referred to as a Landslide!

00:35 It is also called a landslip or a mudslide!

00:41 Landslides can be caused by a number of reasons!

00:44 it could be either natural causes like volcanic eruptions,..

00:49 ..soil erosion and sometimes heavy rainfall, increases the wrath of landslides!

00:56 Even human activities like mining, cutting trees..

01:01 ..increase the fragility of land and make it more prone to landslides.

01:07 One of the most prevalent reasons is Gravity.

01:11 Well, whatever is up, has to fall down due to gravity, isn’t it?

01:19 Landslides can either move very slowly, like some millimeters per year.

01:24 Or it could be disastrously fast!

01:28 Sometimes more than 100 miles per hour!

01:33 But if you’re living on a flat land,..

01:36 With no hills or mountains, then you’re safe!

01:39 But if you’re living somewhere between mountains and on a hilly terrain..

01:44 ..then, my friends, you might be at risk.

01:47 But don’t worry, you could always prepare with some simple steps,…

01:53 Avoid building houses near steep slopes or at the edges of mountains.

02:00 Stay away from drainage paths because water flow increases the speed of landslides!

02:07 Landslides do not only happen on Earth.

02:10 Many scientists believe that planets like Mercury, Mars, and Venus have had landslides too!

02:19 Woah! Looks like friends, I’m not even safe here!


02:26 Landslides can happen underwater too and they are called Submarine Landslides!

02:33 The Heart Mountain Landslide is the largest landslide ever recorded.

02:38 That has happened 50 million years ago!

02:44 So, friends, what are the other two names for Landslides?

02:48 Post it right below in the comments section.

02:51 And wait for fun facts, this is me zooming out!
