Caption: Avalanche. Avalanche pouring down a gully on Mount McKinley, Alaska, USA. Avalanches occur when large amounts of snow and ice become loose and flow down a mountain under the force of gravity. They can be extremely destructive. As well as the force of the snow and ice themselves, the wave of air in front of the rapidly-moving snow (the avalanche wind) can cause buildings to explode before the avalanche hits them. Mount McKinley is the highest mountain in the USA, reaching a height of 6194 metres.
