Swiss village evacuates residents over risk of imminent rockslide

Residents of a tiny Swiss village have all been evacuated due to the
risk of an imminent rockslide.
Brienz's fewer than hundred villagers were given just forty-two hours
to pack what they could and abandon their homes.
Even the dairy cows were loaded up for departure after geologists
warned a rockfall was imminent.
Two million cubic metres of rock is coming loose from the mountain
above amid the likelihood that a rockslide could obliterate the village.
The development has raised questions about the safety of some
mountain communities, as global warming changes the alpine
environment.
