Rain followed in some places by heavy showers is expected.

Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. Debris flows may reach the valley bottom even if they are triggered high in the terrain.
Danger increase Wednesday evening 28. Aug. 2019
Danger decrease Thursday evening 29. Aug. 2019
Consequence Some landslides are expected. A few large events may occur. Exposed railways and 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. Along the watercourses in the flood areas: High discharge can lead to excavation of masses at the foot of slopes. Rapid lowering of water levels after flood can also cause local landslides.
Advice Keep yourself updated about the development of the weather, the landslide and flood situation, and follow the weather radar. Keep away from steep slopes, as well as streams and rivers with high discharge.
