Some are calling this EXTREME and severely dangerous earth change event a “landslide” but the minute you see the photos you know that’s not what this is. NOT a landslide [ which would bury the road ], NOT an earthquake, which would most likely split the road and shift chunks of landmasses up or down, but a complete crumpling, warping and buckling of huge sections of earth beneath the road, which has completely destroyed sections of it. You have to see it to believe it. The event took place on Nov. 20th 2015.
What’s most worrisome about this bizarre and sudden earth upheaval is that just about 10-12 miles to the northwest of Vasquez Canyon Road, which winds through the mountains above Santa Clarita California, sits the enormous Castaic Lake Dam.
If something like this were to occur within, under or close to the dam itself, it would cause an immediate breach and collapse of the dam, flooding the valley below where nearly 180,000 people make their home.
