      you mean.. TWICE
      Note that after they aim the camera to the second boat.. a log comes out right where the boat was.. and would have emerged right next to them if they hadnt sped up.

      It's to bad they didn't keep the camera on them the whole time. Looks like a log almost harpooned the boat. Man,that was close

    I can only imagine the consequences from one of those logs contacting a boat as it torpedo's out of the water. That was a good learning video should a person ever hear the cracking of trees, but it all happens so fast, and so huge. Both those boat were even lucky as it was, and further out would be better, but hindsight is always 20/20. Mother nature is so beyond a grand scale, even in a small setting.

      I think you only yell that when you're cutting down a tree and are telling people to stay clear. When a landslide comes, you yell: "RUUUUUUNNNNNNN!"

      But they use the word "epic" a lot. The only ones who refer to this mud slide as EPIC were the ants who lived on the bank. Of course they say it in ant language which is mostly silence.

    I see this was posted 9 years ago. When I started watching I thought this was recent in BC, although I’m sure this was pretty much what’s been happening there. Wow, great learning video. I knew about mud slides but never thought this could happen in an area that doesn’t look that steep? Going to make me wary about being anywhere in the forest after heavy rains. I was just going to say “ I guess this is pretty rare, but after last week in BC, maybe not.

    I went there, to Johnson's Landing, a few years ago to pay my respects to the people who died in the slide.
    The road to Johnson's Landing is nerve rattling... the slope is very steep... the road VERY narrow along the mountain...
    I was travelling and camping in the area and have returned a couple of times because it is beautiful and remote.
    I camped across the lake from JL, the nights were pitch black...
    It is such a beautiful region...
    Humans must stop cutting down the ancient forest!!!!!!
    Let it heal and maybe just maybe, the slopes will regain their stability...

    That segment from :54 to 1:02 is so scary. It really looks as though the slide is chasing them. They are barely keeping ahead of it and then two stripped tree trunks come almost straight up out of the water as if they are trying to spear the boat. You don't make a much narrower escape than that!

    • Shanna O'Brien
      Shanna O'Brien Hace 9 meses

      @Alex Hardy Yes, but that is not always the answer. It does happen when there has been prolonged or heavy rains where the soil has been completely saturated. The weight of the trees and liquifying soil can no longer hold things together and gravity helps pull everything downhill. One form of natural erosion.

      @Billyboy don’t worry man, the earth will balance itself out. If you live in a house made of wood or drive a car that uses gas or electric then you are raping the world as well. A little bit of rape is still rape.

    • Alex Hardy
      Alex Hardy Hace 9 meses +2

      @Billyboy mudslides like this tend to result from heavy rain after large fires when lightening strikes cause crown fires. While increasing over past 30 years, they have ALWAYS been part of temperate rain forests. Hydrophobic soils with no organic matter . Clear cuts leave slash anymore as erosion control. It's not black and white clear cut as it might seem to a casual observation

      I think at that stage they knew they were out of harm's way with the bigger stuff, and wanted to kill the engine to prevent smaller debris hitting the spinning props. More damage would happen to them if were spinning, making a bad situation worse.

    This is a secondary slide. The initial slide was so intense it traveled for 2.5 km and dropped 700 m into Kootenay Lake.

    Houses lost: 5 ~ Lives lost: 4 (including a father and 2 daughters).

    Intense rain in June 2012 followed by intense heat (> 30°C @ 50th parallel) followed by quick melt of the 120-140% snow pack caused over saturation of the highly porous soil (Karst Topography), resulting in stability failure of the upper portions of Gar Creek. A soil scientist living south of this tiny community said the creek banks failed, damming Gar Creek and a water build up lasted for days before finally giving way.

    My brother sent me this link and i didnt read the description and in the 1st moments of the vid i thought it was gun shots, then 1 of the them said "turn off the engine!" i thought maybe they stumbled on some kind of gun fight up in the mountains..

    then the slide got closer. WOOW

    I have a question. Couple of years ago I hiked to a creek. The creek was covered by trees and branches. As of today, I went there to hike a again but this time, there weren’t any trees. It looked more like a canyon of rocks everywhere. Can a mudslide do that? Can it push a bunch of tress froward down the creek and just leave place looking empty with full of rocks?
