You might have caught this video in your news feed, and it probably made your jaw drop! If not, check it out: https://www.facebook.com/severeweatherEU/videos/2196301537259602/ That comes from the Facebook page Severe Weather Europe. They credit Metro Reporter Storm for the video who credits one Alanhalq. This, of course, is an avalanche. Not just any avalanche, but a wet slab avalanche. Wet snow avalanches typically move very slow, just as the one in the video. And typically occur on warmer days where the snow nears the melting point. Despite the slow speeds and warmer temperatures, these avalanches are among the most destructive. The reason is simply because of the incredible force behind the slide itself. The high moisture content means there is more mass involved in the slide, therefore more force. Thankfully, these typically give us enough time to get out of the way.
