Sayano-Shushenskaya Accident

We received a slide show on this accident at work, and the damage was horrible. Only one of the nine hydro-turbines remains potentially functional. Estimated repair cost is $310 million, and it will take years to get the other eight working. Take a close look at the low structure building in the beginning of the video, and then the missing structure at toward the end.


  1. Wow, that was some massive destruction. So sad about the people killed, and I'd be surprised if they find all of the missing. :(

  2. How awful such destruction can happen ~ so many deaths and missing people I just hope they find some of them ~ but I doubt they will ~ Ally x

  3. How tragic and frightening. Poor souls.

  4. Hi I was wondering if you still had the slideshow and if so could you send it to me at




Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
