This landslide occured after over 1,200mm of rainfall feel in south western Taiwan in just under 72hrs. For you Americans that is over 50 inches!!!

I also made a video on this with licensing from someone who shot the aftermath of the slide.

Hi Rob,

Didn't anyone consider there was a danger of this happening?

The driver of the car has probably just become very religious. First order of business, after new trousers, is a new pair of seat covers!

Its pretty crazy stuff. Only minor injuries reported too. A clean pair of pants in order.

One other thing, at 03 in the video you can see the top of the mountain give way. Its insane.
