Most of the times, nature is a calm environment that caters to the needs of its inhabitants. However, there are times when nature shows its aggressive side and people are advised to move out of the way and let nature run its course.
However, there are those curious-driven people who aren’t seemed to be bothered by the danger that nature sometimes bring along.
One guy who lives along the mountainous landscape of Switzerland managed to capture a ravaging mudslide along the side of the road.
The viral video featured the mudslide that happened somewhere in the village of Grugnay, Chamoson, Switzerland last August 7, 2018.
The cause of the mudslide was an expanding river near the area which was bursting due to the storms that brought about heavy rains. Apparently, local civilians in the area already used to such incidents and would most often go out to witness it firsthand.
The people in the area heard the incoming mudslide about four minutes before it reached them. And even though they were used to mudslides every now and then, they were still shocked with the severity of this particular landslip.
In the video, the mudslide can be seen and heard as it came from the mountain filled with debris and entered the village’s waterway and street.
The mudslide roared on with such intensity that it almost towed off a car parked outside at one of the houses, and took down some of the street’s road signs.
Even with an imminent danger at hand, one woman in the video was noticed by many netizens because she remained relatively close while the incident has happening.
One netizen said, “That lady is standing there, daring the mudslide to change its path.”
Another netizen commented about the woman’s bravery and said, “Okay so I’ve also learned from this is that the women of Switzerland are badass.”
Fortunately, no one was hurt during the mudslide but there were minor industrial damage since two roads were closed; and some houses and cars were along the path of the mudslide.
All over the world, reports about extreme weather and climate conditions have been surfacing. The ever-changing state of the environment can be seen and heard everywhere. Just in the United Kingdom, the country experienced its driest summer ever as heat waves scorched throughout the nation.
