Imminent disaster: Mountain slip threatens Thoi – The Express Tribune

ISLAMABAD: People in a far-flung valley of the western impoverished Ghizer District are living under constant fear of disaster as a mountain at a village has started slipping down, posing Attabad-like danger to the inhabitants.

According to reports, the mountain had developed cracks and started moving down posing danger to 7,000 people of the Thoi Valley in Yasin Tehsil […]

Locals said frequent landslides have been witnessed in the valley during the past three weeks that have destroyed many houses. In response, Focus Humanitarian Assistance, a non-governmental organisation working under the Aga Khan Development Network, has started shifting the residents of the valley to safer areas.
