Landslide carries buildings into sea off Norway

Several buildings destroyed by a powerful landslide were left floating in the sea in northern Norway on Wednesday. The 800-metre long slide at Alta, in the Finnmark region of Norway, took with it eight buildings and a caravan. There were no reports of any injuries. Local media reported that one person had been evacuated and that a dog, which had been swept into the sea, swam ashore.
