landslides are the mass movement of soil, rocks which causes debris flows and large rocks to slide damaging property and taking lives in its path

to reduce impact of landslides aviod building on slopes or close to the edges of mountains or areas that have already had landslidesflat areas are considered safe

prepare for it by getting a ground assessment of the land and an evacuation plan learn about the area you live in to see if it is prone to landslides
