Scary stuff. On October 19, this monstrous block came off the Mel de la Niva in the municipality of Evolène in south Switzerland. The rock had been considered unstable since an avalanche in 2013 and was under surveillance. A local geologist recorded strong activity on the peak last week, and as a precaution, the town below was evacuated. Good thing.
