Description :

The Xinmo rock avalanche occurred at 5:38 AM on the 24th June, 2017, destroyed the whole village of Xinmo, in Maoxian County, Sichuan Province, China. About 4.3 million m3 of rock detached from the crest of the mountain, gained momentum along a steep hillslope, entrained a large amount of pre-existing deposits, and hit the village at a velocity of 250 km/h. The impact produced a seismic shaking of ML = 2.3 magnitude. The sliding mass dammed the Songping gully with an accumulation body of 13 million m3. The avalanche buried 64 houses; 10 people were killed and 73 were reported missing. Source: Fan, X., Xu, Q., Scaringi, G. et al. Landslides (2017) 14: 2129. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10346-017-0907-7
