The small town of Kirovsk, Russia, was buried under a huge avalanche on Feb. 18 that one resident caught on video (below).

“We can confirm that the avalanche descended in the vicinity of Kukisvumchorr Mountain,” a Russian Emergencies Ministry spokeswoman told RT.com.

RIA Novosti reported that one man, who was a member of an anti-avalanche team, was buried under the snow and did not survive.

The avalanche happened after what was supposed to be a controlled anti-avalanche detonation by the team.
