  How to identify high-risk areas... 

Often high-risk areas of land are cheaper than others… sometimes if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.  There are many maps and information available on the Internet or in your city.

 

Since the ground is moving down, the slope the trees will not be standing straight, rather the lower part of the tree will have a curve.

       

 

Roots will be exposed because of the ground moving from underneath trees.

       

 

These pictures show dry stream beds that have worn away at the ground. 

       

 

The streams caused erosion and when dry, the ground crumbles... making it easier for landslides to start and become large.

There are walls built when landslides have happened or if they are predicted to happen...

    This wall has rocks about to slide over it...          The rocks slid around this wall...

                           

    And this wall is made out of rocks, but has debris falling over it...
