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!
02:24 TRIVIA TIME!
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!
