Quick Clay Causes Massive Landslide in Norway

A massive landslide dragged eight buildings into Norway's sea Wednesday, 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 injuries so far, although a dog appears to have been swept away.
