A landslide is a mass of rock, earth, and/or debris that moves down a slope. This can occur quickly or slowly depending on the circumstances.
Depending on the magnitude of the slide, the impacts can vary.
Loss of Life & Damage to Personal Property
Many landslides, like flash floods, occur at night catching people unaware. If advance warning is given by authorities, having a NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio with an alert function could wake you up so that you can react accordingly. Foundations, chimneys, and other rigid structures can be damaged by landslides through only slight shifting. These can be costly to repair, which is another reason to ensure that your insurance covers these events ahead of time.
