A Landsat 8 image of a landslide-caused dam across the Tsarap River in India is helping authorities assess the risk.

A Landsat 8 image of landslide debris blocking the Tsarap River in the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir is helping authorities assess a dangerous situation, as they’re concerned an earthen dam will break and lead to damaging flooding downstream. Frozen waters in the region have reduced the threat from immediate flooding, but authorities are urging those who live downstream to move to higher ground.

The typical method of blasting the dam has been discouraged because of fears of additional landslides. To help predict the outcome when the waters thaw and the barrier breaks, authorities may put a monitoring system on the barrier to better understand the materials and their stability and strength.
