Have a go-kit ready in case you have to leave immediately. Keep copies of important documents in a safe place. Consider planting ground cover or building walls to direct mudflows around buildings. Talk to your insurance agent to see if your policy covers damage from landslides.
Be Safe DURING
If you are under a landslide warning:
- Evacuate an area immediately after authorities tell you to. Signs of a landslide may not be visible, but the danger still exists.
- Watch for flooding. Floods sometimes follow landslides because they may be started by the same event.
- Listen to Emergency Alert Systems for current emergency information and instructions.
