FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be fake.
On extracting the keyframes and putting it through Reverse Image Search, we found that the incident was reported by a local Indonesian media house on April 10, 2020. The title of the video read, ‘100-meter high cliffs in Cianjur Avalanche’. (Translated from Indonesian)

‘100 meters high cliff in Cianjur, West Java landslides on Thursday (09/04/2020) covering the entire road. As a result, access to dozens of subdistricts in South Cianjur was totally paralyzed,’ description read. (Translated from Indonesian)
We debunked the same video earlier when it was circulated as being from Shillong, Meghalaya in India.
