NOVA: Killer Landslides examines the Oso disaster

At 10:37 a.m. on a sunny Saturday morning in March, residents in 30 homes along a bend in a beautiful river in the mountains of Washington state were enjoying their morning coffee, many spending time with family on their day off, when a distant roar interrupted the routine: the terrifying sound of what would become the United States’ deadliest landslide in decades. The equivalent of three million dump truck loads of earth came plummeting down the valley, snapping trees and shattering houses along with everything inside. In less than two minutes, a one-square-mile field of debris, 20 feet deep, slammed into the neighborhood. While a massive search and rescue effort continues at the site, geomorphologists are tracing the geological history of Oso, from the deposition of loose sand and gravel during the last Ice Age to modern-day logging to climate change, to explain why the site was so unstable.
