Rock Slide Caught on Tape


(YouTube link)

A road crew and a television crew were on the scene on Highway 64 in Polk County, Tennessee Tuesday when a massive rock slide covered the road. Workers were busy removing a large rock that fell Tuesday morning when the mountain gave away at about 1PM. Rock slides are not uncommon in the mountain area of East Tennessee, but they are rarely seen in progress, much less recorded. The road will be closed for at least a week. Link

Wait a minute. Not only did they call a scientist in, but they listened to them? This isn't the 21st century that I know. And on local news? Level people doing level things on local news? Oh, there was a video. Okay.

Ducktown. Ha!

Cool video. I wondered why we weren't hearing people whooping and swearing - just the sound of the rocks sliding.

That's just wild. I used to live in that area and drove that road everyday. There were always "little" rock slides after heavy rain but this is pretty big. Hwy 64 is one of the few roads in that area so this really sucks for people driving to and from work.
