Yellow level

Published: Valid: from 03.08.2018 07:00 to 04.08.2018 06:59
Next forecast before:
  • Danger increase: Friday afternoon 3. Aug. 2018
  • Danger decrease: Saturday morning 4. Aug. 2018

Consequence

Some landslides are expected. A few large events may occur. Exposed roads may be closed. Debris avalanches/shallow slides: Soil slides and rapid movement of saturated soil in steep terrain. Debris flows: A "flood" of water, soil and rocks in steep creeks. Surface runoff in steep terrain can cause streams to change regular flow patterns.

Advice

Keep away from steep slopes, as well as streams and rivers with high discharge. Cleaning of drainage paths and culverts are recommended. Keep water paths and culverts free from sediments, waste, twigs and leaves.

Description

Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. The amount of water in the soil is significant.
