The Koslanda landslide in Google Earth

We have looked at a number of landslides in the past, including the Bingham Canyon mine landslide, a landslide near Oso, Washington and a whole set of landslides in Brazil.

On 29th October 2014, there was a landslide in the district of Badulla, Sri Lanka, which hit the village of Koslanda. A site called Groundviews has managed to obtain satellite imagery from Digital Globe showing the landslide and they also include a KML so that you can view it in Google Earth. Find the story and KML here.
