Rainfall and Landslides in Northern CA

2008 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Debris flow from steep slopes in the Big Sur area of central California that resulted from rains following the 2008 Basin Complex fire. With little vegetation to hold soil in place, channels may fill with sediment that can then be triggered into debris flows by heavy rainfall.
