#NEWS: Drone footage shows moment house collapses into river in Alaska, US

Drone footage captured the moment a house collapsed into the Mendenhall River in Alaska after glacial floods. Record flooding occurred in the Alaskan capital of Juneau, after a glacial dam outburst – when trapped water escapes through cracks in thinning ice dams. This phenomenon has increased around the world as a result of the climate crisis. The water level of Mendenhall Lake reached nearly 4.6 metres on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service, a 91cm rise over the previous record set in 2016.
