Here is an overview of the natural disaster that unfolded at 530am Friday morning in British Columbia just north of Whistler/Pemberton.
A massive landslide occurred blocking two major water-flows creating natural dams composed of unstable volcanic debris mixed with vegetation trees etc.
The dams will give way when enough water pools behind the two debris flows.
It’s interesting to note the power of the landslide where the slide meets and blocks Meager Creek. The landslide flow went uphill and washed the forest away for several hundred vertical feet before turning north to block the Lillooet River.
Updates: Landslide update… river water has found away through…only 30% of population in affected area responded to evacuation notice
