A large landslide on Whidbey Island, about 50 miles north of Seattle, has destroyed at least one home, and left four others under evacuation orders Friday. The slide has also isolated or threatens at least 32 other homes.

  • The slide area, part of greater landslide complex, a legacy of the Puget Sound’s glacial past, probably dates back to about 11,000 years ago, State geologists said.
  • The landslide displaced about quarter of a million cubic yards of earth.
  • The landslide has a 400m wide front on the beach and extends about 100m into the sound.

Korean War Would Accelerate Global Collapse

North Korea enters ‘state of war’ against South

North Korea says it has entered a “state of war” against its southern neighbor, warning that any issues between the two countries will be dealt with in a “wartime manner,” reports said.

North Korea has warned that any military provocation near the land or sea border of the two sides would result “in a full-scale conflict and a nuclear war,” said a report.

Pyongyang has been repeatedly threatening to attack the South and U.S. military bases in the region since the beginning of March.

Tens of thousands of North Koreans expressed support for their leader’s threat of a military strike against the United States during a massive rally held on Friday.

The official North Korean Central News Agency [KCNA] said the leader has put the country’s rocket units on standby, after an emergency meeting with the top military commanders on Friday.

“The time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation.” Kim Jong Un was quoted as saying.

South Korea had earlier confirmed the notification by Pyongyang that DPRK had cut off the military communications hotline on March 27, reports said.

“Tensions have been running high on the Korean Peninsula since the DPRK conducted its third nuclear test on Feb. 12 as a countermeasure against the joint military drills of the United States and South Korea,” said a report.

Russian Foreign Minister said Russia was concerned about increased military activity around North Korea, an apparent reference to the US – SK military drills, warning that a buildup of tensions on the Korean peninsula could “spiral into a vicious cycle.”
