Clay Banks landslide video is uploaded

View a 2 minute video on YouTube I made at the Clay Banks landslide toe Thursday. The vid is annotated and narrated.

The video is here: http://youtu.be/Hxwu-cf3bFo

  1. Are any plans being made to enlarge the river flow across the slide? Looks like a flood in the making when high water come!

    • Neil,
      There is no practical access to the landslide area. The river is doing a good job of cutting a channel around it. Immediately after the landslide, the river got started cutting a channel across the middle of the slide toe. This would naturally help drain when river levels rise. Plus the river channel is quite wide there. I really doubt a landslide could completely plug the channel- to do that, it would need to make it all the way across the gravel bar on the north side of the current river location, a distance of several hundred meters. I’m not responsible, however, if I am wrong on this one! DT

  2. Thanks for your reply and I hope that you are right. You can understand my concern as I live just above the problem area.
    Keep up your good work and your video was super good. NS

    • Thank you Neil. How far upriver do you live? Do you have access to the river shore? Can you see the Clay Banks from where you live?
