SaveTheHills(STH) is a group of concerned citizens who are raising awareness about landslides in Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya.
Many landslides are the direct or indirect result of human interference and preventable if sufficient care is taken.
As such, unless we begin a comprehensive and sustained program towards landslide management, prevention and mitigation, the consequences of ignoring years of human callousness will, in the future be devastating.

STH stormwatch (23May2014) : POOF! and the storm disappears!!!
The depression which was predicted to move northwestwards towards Bangladesh both by the JTWC and IMetD yesterday, seemed to have a mind of its own today and curved southwest wards and quite suddenly weakened into a well marked low and as such has become insignificant.
It's amazing that all the science and technology in the world cannot quite predict or understand the behavior of these storms as they wax and wane in the ocean.
