Mountain is moving in California

Landslide Buckles Vasquez Canyon Road; 2-Mile Stretch Closed Indefinitely

A portion of Vasquez Canyon Road remained closed indefinitely Friday after a landslide prompted buckling and significant damage along a 2-mile stretch in the Canyon Country area.


The roadway was closed Thursday between Lost Creek Road and Vasquez Way after public works officials first noticed the shift around 10:30 that morning."This isn’t just the road; it’s the mountain itself that’s moving and it’s pushing the road up," said Paul Funk with L.A. County Department of Public Works.

The closure was said to be indefinite and would likely last for "a long time," Funk said.

In less than 24 hours, the roadway changed from appearing slightly tilted to being very badly damaged.

More than half the road was lifted some 15 feet in the air, with dirt from the neighboring hillside sliding underneath and causing significant cracks.

As of Friday, the roadway was still adjusting. KTLA reporter Mark Mester, who was at the scene, said he could hear the soil shifting.

Check out the pictures at the link. This reminds me of the movie 2012. The whole mountain is moving.   :damned:
