Increased Risk Of Landslides Due To Severe Weather, Fires

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries is warning of the risk of landslides. The severe weather over the past several days coupled with areas that have been burned by recent wildfires is increasing risk for landslides and debris flows. The latter can include large rocks, logs, and other dangerous debris carried downhill by fast-moving soil and water through narrow canyons. Residents near areas of steep terrain are being warned to stay up to date on any and all weather alerts.
