Landslide shook Alaska and Canada

Even by Alaskan standards, landslide Glacier National Park Gleysher Bay — an event of enormous size.

A runaway rock buried a beautiful white glacier and caused an earthquake of 3.4 points in Alaska and an earthquake in Canada. Due to the distance and the height of the scene found a mudslide in July, a month after the event. And then by chance — thanks to the pilot "air taxi", which snapped a few pictures while flying over the glacier.

— Landslide bury 5.5 miles of the glacier — the largest on record in North America, — Martin Girtsima, geomorphologist from British Columbia. — The risk of landslides is increasing around the world — due to global warming and the melting of permafrost.
