Acht vermisten na lawine Zwitserland

Na een lawine in de Zwitserse Alpen worden zeker acht mensen vermist. Volgens de politie gaat het om Duitsers, Oostenrijkers en Zwitsers.

De lawine vond gisteren plaats op de 3369 meter hoge Piz Cengalo. Mogelijk is er bij het natuurgeweld vier miljoen kubieke meter aan stenen en modder naar beneden gekomen.

Honderd inwoners van de nabijgelegen plaats Bondo zijn voor de zekerheid geëvacueerd, omdat grote stenen de plaats hebben bereikt. Volgens de Zwitserse publieke omroep SRG SSR mogen zij nog niet terug naar hun huizen. Doordat de plaats een alarmsysteem heeft voor lawines, raakte daar niemand gewond.

Another major landslide in Switzerland
Another major landslide took place in southern Switzerland on August 23, 2017, just three days after six hikers got hit by falling rocks in a similar incident.

According to a statement issued by Bern police on Monday, August 21, six people were injured after a rock avalanche that lasted approximately 20 seconds struck a path around the Gelmersee, a popular lake in the Bernese Oberland, on Sunday afternoon, August 20.

Two teenagers and four adults were airlifted to hospital, while an injured dog was treated by a vet. One of the injured people is in serious condition.

The affected path has been cordoned off while geologists investigate the cause of the rockfall. Operation of the Gelmerbahn cable car up to the lake was also temporarily suspended, but later reopened, The Local reported.

Witnesses told newspaper 20 Minuten that around a hundred people were hiking around the lake at the time. "The noise was deafening," one of them said. "Then we heard the screams of the wounded."[

A similar incident, although apparently on a much larger scale, took place on Wednesday morning, August 23, just 100 km (62 miles) SE at Piz Cengalo, a mountain in the Bregaglia range of the Alps on the border between the Swiss canton of Graubünden and Italy.

Experts estimate some 4 million m3 (141.2 million ft3) of rocks tumbled down the mountain.

According to RSI News, some 100 residents were evacuated after the rockfall early Wednesday caused destructive debris flow. The flow destroyed an old bridge on the Bondasca River in the town of Bondo and several other structures, including homes.

Kan daar enorm regenen, vlgns mij omdat daar zuidelijke lucht tegen de Majolapas op loopt. Kom regelmatig in buurdorpje Soglio aan de overkant. Maar nooit begrepen wat mensen op noord-hellingen zoeken. 8-)
Suf weetje: dal vanaf Sankt Moritz naar Chiavenna is enig stukje Italiaans taalgebied waar men voornamelijk protestant is.

Zal eerder een losstaand geval op één piste zijn, niet alsof de hele berg neer komt denderen of zo.
