Documentary Tsunami HD Seconds From Disaster - Mountain Tsunami (Full HD)
In 1960 construction of Europe's tallest dam is completed in the Vajont Valley in Northern Italy - the jewel in the crown of an ambitious hydro-electric generation scheme. But as the new reservoir fills, a vast section of mountainside is dislodged and creeps towards the lake. The power company know the landslide has the potential to cause a devastating tsunami if it hits the water at speed, so they develop a plan to ease the landslide down by adjusting the level of the lake. For two years there are no problems, but in October 1963, the landslide suddenly accelerates - and slams into the reservoir as fast as a formula one car - creating a tsunami 250 metres high which overtops the dam and swamps the valley below - killing more than 2000 people. Seconds from Disaster reveals the systematic errors that led to tragedy - and sheds new light on the landslide mechanism that has baffled scientists for 50 years.
