Insane Footage of Rockslide in Switzerland

See if you can wrap your head around this crazy footage showing what appears to be half of a mountain breaking away and tumbling down a mountain-side in Switzerland.

If you needed any reminding of the power of nature and the mountains, look no further than this video. Captured in October, the footage shows a huge chunk of rock falling away from a mountain in the Valaisan community of Evolène, Switzerland.

“As officials said, the rock had been considered as fragile and was under observation. About 2000 cubic meters of stone then broke finally off a cliff, falling down into the valley. According to officials, there have not been seen any damages so far. A little village got evacuated and one road closed before although the rocks did not reach this infrastructure.”

Putain indeed…!
