Recently there are many families who go camping in the summer. If such families do not fully understand the power of nature where conditions can change very suddenly, there will be accidents with irreparable damages. Remember the below points and enjoy your camping experience in a safe manner.
Landslides on cliff faces may occur due to typhoons and concentrated rain. When a landslide is about to occur there are the following signs. People who live in potentially hazardous areas should watch out for these.
Rockslides are when the ground on a cliff becomes soft due to rainfall and suddenly begins to slide down the slope. It all occurs in one quick moment so the damage is great. If there is more than 20mm of rainfall in an hour, or rain continues to fall so that there has been over 100mm, then you should be on alert, even after the rain has stopped.
Mudslides occur when the mud, stones and sand on slopes or valleys all of a sudden slides downwards due to heavy rain. These are fast moving and powerful, causing damage over a wide area.
Landslides are relatively slow moving, with the clay-level of the ground gently moving down a slope. They occur over a large area so the damage is great.
