VIDEO: Car narrowly avoids massive landslide
In this amazing dash-cam video shot in Taiwan, a driver narrowly escapes a massive landslide that occurred during tropical storm Kong-Rey, which dumped more than 19 inches of rain on the island last week.
What is even more amazing is the gigantic boulder that follows, appearing to come within just a few feet of crushing the car. It looks like a scene from “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
All kidding aside, three people died as a result of the heavy rains that battered Taiwan’s heavily populated west coast and caused widespread flooding, according to The Weather Channel.
Officials said a total of 3,600 residents were evacuated. Floodwater was reported to have reached the second story level of buildings in some places on the island.
