Mudslide Restoration

Mudslide Restoration in the Four Corners Region

The damage from a mudslide to a community or an individual home can be devastating. A mudslide can be more catastrophic than a flood because it brings with it water, mud, rocks, and other debris carried down the mountain by torrential rains and often comes with little to no warning.

What Causes Mudslides in Durango, Farmington, Cortez & Pagosa Springs

There are many reasons why mudslides occur, but the biggest is deforestation. When forests are devoid of trees that can stop water and mud in its tracks, floods and mudslides are the result. Forest fires that create burn scars can usher in deadly and damaging mudslides when it rains which can obliterate entire communities with thick sludge.

What to Do to Prepare for Mudslides

When heavy rains are forecast in an area prone to mudslides, you should evacuate your family to a safe place. Before you leave, prepare your home for a possible mudslide by following these steps:

  • Try to secure what you can by elevating furniture and appliances off the ground.
  • Prepare emergency kits for each member of your family. Each kit should have 3 days’ worth of food and water, warm clothing, blankets, power banks, flashlights, and medication.
  • Place all important papers in an airtight container that you can bring with you. This should include your passports, insurance policies, and other similar documents.

If you are unable to evacuate from your home before a mudslide occurs, protect yourself by covering your head and curling into a tight ball.
