Landslide, Los Angeles

(See Close Ups)

The earthquake caused thousands of landslides in the region. One of the more notable ones occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway. The extent of the landslide was about 45 metres high and 400 metres wide. It damaged buildings at the top of the slope, as the ground disappeared from below their foundations.
