Did you know that most landslides occur between the months of October and April? And that 86 percent of landslides are caused to some extent by human activity? Landslide season is upon us and although the Seattle rainfall is currently below the landslide threshold, the City of Seattle is urging residents to take preventive measures to protect themselves and their property from possible landslides.
Protect Yourself and Your Home from Landslides
Did you know there were nearly 100 reported landslides in Seattle last year? As part of an annual series, DPD and Seattle Public Utilities will be hosting two free landslide meetings. The meetings will provide presentations and individual consultation on best practices for managing landslide-prone properties.
