What are landslides?

A landslide is the mass movement of rock, soil, and debris down a slope due to gravity. It occurs when the driving force is greater than the resisting force.It is a natural process that occurs in steep slopes. The movement may range from very slow to rapid. It can affect areas both near and far from the source.

Landslide materials may include:

  • Soil
  • Debris
  • Rock
  • Garbage
