Gold King Video

I have had an interest in the Gold King Mine spill ever since it happened back in August. I made an LJ post about it right after it happened saying how much media hype there was surrounding it. I later made a post about how I taught a class at the UNM about the spill since a co-worker was the instructor and thought my "research" into the spill was informative. Yesterday I received an email with an attachment of a report which did a "post mortum" of the event and all the steps that lead up to it. In the report it mentioned that there was video of the actual release. I was able to track it down. Here are some pretty impressive clips of the events of the day

Here are the first few seconds of the beginning of flow

Now it gets bad.

Really bad!

Here's the flood further downstream. Very impressive!
