Another major glacial debris flow blocked the Yarlung Tsangpo river in Tibet

from The Landslide Blog

On Oct. 17, a major debris flow occurred on the Sedong Ri glacier above the Yarlung Tsangpo river in Tibet, one of the tributaries of the Brahmaputra. This flow blocked the river, although the barrier was quickly overtopped, and flow resumed. Colonel Vinayak Bhat (retired), who posts on Twitter as @rajfortyseven, has posted an article on The Print in which he has used satellite imagery to show that a further major surge has occurred in this glacial system, once again blocking the Yarlung Tsangpo, although subsequently the dam has overtopped once more. more
