This is a bit chilling. Apparently the Port of Chibatao, Brazil, just experienced a landslide, causing roads, containers, etc., to fall into the sea.
Quite dramatic. Not something you see every day. Thanks to Barry.
Not much is written on the event. Here is the one article I’ve found.
The slide was apparently triggered by a backhoe working an on exit ramp at the site, according to this article. This small level of disturbance would be enough to start a quick clay slide under certain circumstances. The loss of those cargo containers, mostly full of electronic goods according to the article, is going to be very expensive. It appears that two workers were killed, but this is unconfirmed.
