A truck is hauled from a hole 32 feet deep and 16 feet wide on Via dei Colli Portuensi in Rome.
A large truck, equipped for draining the sewers, was hauled out of an even larger sinkhole last week in Rome. The fire department, with the help of two large cranes, came to the rescue after a sinkhole opened in Via dei Colli Portuensi in the Italian capital on the morning of April 15.

The chasm opened as a heavy truck was driving along the road. The driver was able to get out and was unhurt.

In addition, a car that was parked on the side of the road partly sank and had to be recovered.

The removal operation was complex because the crews needed to conduct safety checks on the asphalt before the road was reopened to traffic.

Biggest rockfall in 60 years at UK's Jurassic Coast, more falls expected

Jurassic landslide

Huge Dorset Jurassic Coast rockfall revealed in drone footage
A huge section of a cliff on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset has collapsed on to a beach below and into the sea in the biggest UK rockfall in 60 years.

The rockfall happened just west of the south coast seaside town of Weymouth and Dorset council said more cliff was expected to be lost, with people being urged to stay away from the area. Parts of the coastal path were cordoned off.

A spokesperson for the council said: "Further movement is expected with fresh cracks affecting the fence line but not the coast path. We will monitor over the next few weeks to ensure that any further movement does not affect access.

"Now the ground is drying out, there is the possibility of more slips and falls and they can happen very quickly. For your safety, keep clear of tops and bases of cliffs when out and about."

Comment: It's likely that the rockfall is related to the rise in various and unusual sinkholes and landslides being reported all over the world:

Several cars fell into a sinkhole after a hot water pipe broke in the parking lot of a shopping centre in St. Petersburg on Monday.

Footage filmed by eyewitnesses shows the cars slowly falling into the hole.

According to the press office of the Fuel and Energy Complex, the reason behind the accident was a technological malfunction that caused a burst of the main pipeline.

Landslide blocks Europe's busiest freight train link in Germany's Rhine Valley

landslide rhine
A landslide at the Middle Rhine Valley near Kestert has blocked the underlying railway, with no traffic possible the entire week. On Monday 15 March 5,000 cubic metres of stones and rubble came down, not only affecting the rails but also blocking part of the B42 federal highway between Kamp-Bornhofen and Kaub. Currently, geologists and special forces are securing the area and unblocking the way for transportation.

European rail freight is heavily impacted by the landslide, as it disrupts traffic though Europe's most heavily used freight line: the Rhine-Alpine corridor. According to reports from the site, freight traffic diverts through the left bank of the Rhine using the Bingen route. However, this is not enough since long-distance trains are excluded from this diversion, a situation that also affects the bustling Genoa-Rotterdam route.

Comment: It's likely that this landslide is correlated with the extreme flooding and drought that Europe has seen in recent times, as well as being part of an overall uptick in geologic and seismic events that's also seems to be correlated with the rise in landslides and sinkholes.

However, it's particularly concerning that Europe's busiest freight line is now out of service, because, over in Egypt, the Suez Canal, which is a critical shipping lane for the distribution of goods is also out of service due to a ship becoming stuck: Strange Sounds reports of another landslide that occurred in Germany just a few weeks before. Investigators state that the area, a former mine, was being worked on because it was known to be unstable, but, bearing in mind the above, one wonders if it's related to the general uptick in these kinds of events:
On Thursday 11 March 2021, a large landslide occurred on the banks of an abandoned and flooded open case coal mine site at Knappensee in eastern Germany [...]

This bank had been undergoing work recently and was a site with known geotechnical problems. The unslipped areas in the image above have little or no vegetation, suggesting engineering works since the last growing season. [...]

RESIDENTS in Ceuta were alarmed when a huge sinkhole appeared in the road near the entrance to the Barriada del Principe.

The sinkhole, which measured several metres in diameter, took up part of the pavement and the road, by the old Quemadero bridge and the football field, in the Spanish enclave city in North Africa.

The leader of the local Caballas Coalition party, Mohamed Ali, tweeted about the sinkhole, which left residents in the area shocked over how dangerous it could have proved.

The area was cordoned off and barriers were placed around the sinkhole.

This aerial photo shows a sinkhole in the village of Mececani, central Croatia, Thursday, March 4, 2021.
After the deadly earthquake came the sinkholes.

A central Croatian region about 40 kilometers (25 miles) southwest of the capital, Zagreb, is pocked with round holes of all sizes, which appeared after December's 6.4-magnitude quake that killed seven people and caused widespread destruction.

Scientists have been flocking to Mecencani and other villages in the sparsely-inhabited region for observation and study.
