  • Description

    Last Sunday afternoon the pilot Martignoni realized, when crossing the St. Niklausvalley, that above the little village Herbriggen a mountain started moving. Shortly afterwards one was able to figure out that at least 150 000 Kubikmeters have started moving. Within a very short time, this mass of dirt had moved for 30 m already. Sunday night at 6 pm. an extra train was ready, so that the population of Herbriggen could evacuate. But the old farmers wanted to stay in their own homes. The mountain keeps on coming nearer and nearer, it is only about 1 km away from Herbriggen. Most probably it will not be possible to keep the mountain from coming.
