Landslides and Mudslides
Landslides are created by the downward movement of unstable materials on slopes caused by weakening of the soil structure over time, construction of houses and roads thereby destroying natural slopes, weathering of the ground materials, earthquakes, droughts, fires, and then substantial rainfall, rapid snow melts, and the effects of gravity. Landslides may be caused by earthquakes, storms, and volcanic activity. Rapidly moving water and debris can cause injury, death, and destruction of property, utilities, roads, railroads, etc.
