Caption: Landslide blocking a road at the Grimsel Pass near the village of Guttannen, Switzerland, after heavy rains in August 2005. The rains caused the Rotlaui river (seen at upper left) to become greatly engorged and burst its banks. They also caused the nearby Aare river to be diverted, flooding parts of Guttannen.
