LANDSLIDE LAKE IN
PAKISTAN






Five months ago, on January 4th, 2010 in the
remote
Hunza River
Valley of northern
Pakistan, a massive landslide buried the
village of Attabad, destroying 26 homes, killing 20 people, and damming
up the
Hunza
River. As the newly-formed lake grew, authorities rushed to evacuate and
supply those affected in the landslide area and upstream. The lake is
now over 300 feet deep and 16km (10 mi) long, submerging miles of
highway, farms and homes.
Earlier this week, the lake reached the top of the natural dam, and
began to spill out - rapid erosion of the landslide debris has
authorities worried about a potential breach, and locals have been
evacuated as officials monitor the developing situation. Special
thanks to the Pamir Times
for sharing their photos and coverage of this event.

This photograph was taken
while a secondary landslide was taking place near Attabad village in
northern
Pakistan on January 22, 2010, after the original massive landslide of
January 4th blocked most of the
Hunza Valley and dammed the
Hunza
River.

neighboring
China which are ferried through a lake due to blockade of the
Karakoram Highway, in Attabad, northern
Pakistan. A massive landslide early this year formed a natural dam in
the
Hunza
River created a lake that is consuming upstream as it expands. If dam
breaks, a flash flood could threaten downstream villages.

Pakistan, May 21, 2010. Thousands have been evacuated from their homes
this week in north
Pakistan amid fears a lake, formed after a landslide blocked the
Hunza River on January 4, could soon burst, triggering massive flooding
and severing an important trade link with
China.

Workers use machines to
dig a spillway to release water pressure built up by the natural dam
caused by a landslide in Attabad village in Hunza
district of northern Pakistan May 12, 2010. Fears are growing a lake
created by a landslide will burst and cause a massive flood that could
affect more than 50,000 people in
northern Pakistan and disrupt a key trade link with China, residents
said on Wednesday.

The Advanced Spaceborne
Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on the Terra
satellite acquired this false-color image of the landslide
lake on June 1, 2010 - now 16km (10 mi) long. Taken 10 weeks earlier,
and see that the lake has grown by 5km in length. Water appears in
varying shades of blue. Vegetation is red. Bare rock appears in shades
of brown and gray.

After the lake began to
flow through the spillway that was cut into the landslide debris on May
29th, the flow of the water has increased, but
still does not match the inflow upstream from the Hunza
River. And - as is evidenced by these two images (May 30th on the left,
June 4th on the right), the outflow is eroding the debris, working back
toward the lake - potentially signaling an upcoming breach where
nearly five months worth of river flow might wash away the dam and
cause serious flooding downstream. Scientists and authorities are
monitoring the situation and evacuations have been undertaken for all
threatened areas.
