No one saw a massive landslide in a remote valley on B.C.’s central coast back in late 2020, but it was detected as far away as Australia.
In a few seconds, 50 million tonnes of rock dropped from a mountainside into Elliott Lake.
The results of a new study show it triggered a tsunami 100 metres tall. The study also has some startling findings including how fast that wave was moving.
Glaciers in central B.C. are melting faster than almost anywhere else in the world.
As Ted Chernecki reports, researchers fear the event is a red flag for any region where glaciers are melting.
