Land continues to shift around Johnsons Landing landslide
More debris rushed down the mountain in Johnsons Landing Friday morning, following the path of a landslide there the day before.
The force of the slide snapped trees along the edge of the Kooteney Lake and frightening boaters who were cruising along the shore to get a closer look at the slide area.
Emergency Info BC put a message out over Twitter around 12:30 p.m. Friday afternoon asking onlookers to keep clear from the landslide area.
Calgary-based reporter for Global National, Francis Salvaggio, captured raw footage of this secondary slide from a boat, which can be seen here.
A Kaslo-based terrain stability specialist told the Star that it could take a month for the debris to fully settle.
Nelson Star reporter Megan Cole is following this story from Kalso, where evacuated residents have gathered.
