Tens of thousands of mapped landslides — many going back decades — are already in a database that DNR maintains for citizens, local governments and others to access when making land-use decisions. The recent heavy rains across much of Western Washington brought new attention to citizens’ roles in reporting landslides. At latest count, the rainfall on December 11 and 12 has resulted in 51 notable landslides. Here’s our updated landslide map.
The news media has helped get the word out about our database:
Issaquah Press: Report landslides to Department of Natural Resources geologists
Geology.com: Washington DNR Asks the Public to Report Landslides
Seattle Times: DNR wants to hear about storm-caused landslides
Thanks to all who have contributed. Here’s how to report a landslide to DNR
