Land continues to shift around Johnsons Landing landslide

More debris rushed down the mountain in Johnsons Landing Friday morning

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.

Updates will continue throughout the day at nelsonstar.com.
