Several houses have been swept into the sea following a powerful landslide in Alta municipality, northern Norway, on Wednesday.

Anders Bjordal, a Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate engineer, told CNN that he saw there had been a "big clay slide" after being called to the scene at 4 p.m. (10 a.m. ET) Wednesday to offer guidance to the police and rescue team.

The slide was 650 meters (2,133 feet) wide and 150 meters (492 feet) deep, destroyed eight buildings, including four cabins which act as weekend residences, Bjordal added.

No one was harmed and all people were evacuated from the buildings, he said.

Bjordal said mudslides of this scale "seldom happen in Norway, maybe every one or two years." "Here in Alta there has never been a slide that big," he said.

Alta municipality, located in the country's northernmost Finnmark county, is known for its forests, mountain plateaus, coastal landscapes, and Northern Lights.

Officials will be monitoring the land for further movement over the coming days, as well as monitoring the sea and seabed level. Next week, officials will take soil measurements, Bjordal added.

Can someone explain to me why these guys don't use cement to build their houses?

I've noticed this in foreign houses. Just plank and small metal. They don't even have foundations. Small breeze, everything don scatter.

Is cement very expensive there abi its illegal to build houses with cement?

I'll appreciate helpful comments.

So sad. That's my dream country. I can bet you that the government won't waste anytime in fixing that place. In some countries, if the affected people are known to be supporters of the opposition party, nothing will be done. In fact nothing will be done to fix that place despite money been budgeted for it
