Video – Massive landslide sweeps an entire neighbourhood into the sea in Norway
A massive landslide has dragged eight buildings into Norway’s sea as a huge chunk of coast vanished underwater.
Footage captured by drones yesterday shows the devastating moment a piece of the coastline began to move towards the sea in the northern town of Alta.
The land disappears underwater as the current of the sea carries several building back towards the land.
The landslide was 800 metres long and 40 metres high.
There are no reports of any deaths or injuries so far, although a dog appears to have been swept away.
Twitter users have expressed their astonishment at the footage. One said: ‘2020 just doesn’t quit!’
Another said: ‘A stunning reminder that Mother Nature is always in charge… can you imagine driving home from a hard day at work and seeing your entire neighbourhood floating into the sea…’
A third said: ‘This is mad. Even the earth wants to get away from 2020!’
