Landslides

Landslides involve the movement of large amounts of earth, rock, sand or mud.

Landslides don’t happen often in Logan, but they are still a low-risk threat to our community.

Landslides can be caused by a major event such as:

  • earthquakes
  • soil saturation from rainfall or seepage
  • human activity such as removing vegetation and building.

Some of the signs of a landslide include:

  • trees tilting
  • water seepage
  • breaks in the ground
  • cracks in walls
  • cracks and subsidence in roads and paths.
