The village of Grugnay in the municipality of Chamoson in Valais, southwest Switzerland, was struck by a gush of sediment, triggered by a series of heavy rainfalls on Tuesday. The mudslide rushed through waterways and roadways, overcoming crash barriers and pouring out onto the asphalt as panicked local residents looked on.
Videos were filmed by François Voeffray and Nathan Coudry. There were no injuries reported but some streets were blocked off as the clearing-up process began, according to Swiss broadcaster RTS.
