Dozens evacuated after massive landslide in Trondheim, Norway – Jan 1, 2012

Dozens of people fled from a rural area bordering Norway’s third largest city on Sunday because of a massive landslide but no casualties have been reported, police said, cited by AFP.

 

“We have evacuated many farms,” regional police operation leader Tore Kyllo told AFP after the landslide struck just south of Trondheim in central Norway.

The river of muddy black sludge stretching about a kilometre (over half a mile) was moving through the area and geologists have been sent up in a helicopter to evaluate the danger, Kyllo said.
