The 9th August 2013 Coal Pile Collapse in Odisha caused by a 8.9 MM surge from the World's Dams

The Dams of the World produce surge waves of Dynamic Disequilibrium like a great earthquake to destroy modern structures:

 “At least 9 persons were killed in Odisha’s Sundergarh district on Saturday following a massive slide in the coal overburden dump yard of nationalised Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL).
The accident occurred at about 10 am at MCL’s coal mines in the district’s Basundhara area, about 500 km northwest of Bhubaneswar, when a overburden dump caved in following the slide and buried about 20 persons, mostly local villagers, who had gone to extract coal from it in the process.”
“Overburden is the waste material that lies above the coal reserve that is removed before mining and dumped in a heap. Thousands of local poor illegally extract low-grade coal from the heaps risking their lives to earn their livelihood.”

Details of the damage I  traced to the World’s dams: See Table TADS below. The damage occurred and people died as the wave passed Basundhara Coal Pile from the deep focus damquake at Banda Sea to the damquake at Southern Iran. A hot spot was recorded on 9th August at 1630 hrs near the event location:

20.956 20.956 85.177 85.177 48  20130809 1630      T
The applied sliding moment was huge estimated as the equivalent to the energy released by a great damquake of magnitude 8.9 MM(moment magnitude).
