How do I report a landslide?
Notice something is missing? Have a new observation? Report landslides to email@example.com. If possible, include the following information:
- Location (GPS coordinates or a description)
- Information about the time of the event if known (a window of time is also helpful)
- Impacts (if any infrastructure was affected, anyone was hurt, streams were obstructed etc.)
Where can I see existing landslides?
The US Forest Service upkeeps a landslide inventory of the Tongass National Forest. The landslide inventory is updated annually. The inventory is produced using field observations and satellite imagery. It includes all mass wasting features (not just debris flows), including talus slopes, snow avalanche fields, and snow avalanche chutes.
