"Amazing. The mini tsunami that carried them back towards shore was incredible too. I wonder what the geology was at work there. Ordinarily mudslides involve steeper slopes. Astonishing footage", wrote a user.
Another commented, "It's a quick clay slide, and they're usually caused by rising groundwater levels. When the topsoil becomes saturated, the excessive water has nowhere to go but into the quick clay, causing it to liquefy and a slide to happen".
