The Vajont Dam as seen from the village of Longarone

The Vajont Dam as seen from the village of Longarone in 2005, showing approximately the top 60–70 metres (66–77 yd) of concrete. The wall of water that overtopped the dam by 250 metres (270 yd)[1] and destroyed this village and all nearby villages on 9 October 1963 would have obscured virtually all of the blue sky in this photo
