Landslides, Set 2
Boulders partially bury a house from a debris flow triggered by rapid snow melt in late May, 1983. The rapidly-moving debris flow emerged from a canyon and killed one person, injured several others, destroyed or severely damaged five homes, and buried a highway.
This set expands the topics included in Set 1 and includes (in addition to landslides) rockfalls, rock avalanches, mud flows, debris flows, slumps, creep, and sinkholes. The photos were taken in California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Washington state, and the countries of Peru and Puerto Rico. Eighteen of the slides depict events that occurred between 1980 and 1999.
