A slope does not have to be steep to slide. Slopes as gradual as 15 percent have slid when weak, clay soil is present. Steep slopes with bedrock do not typically slide, but falling rock may be a danger. Slides can occur even in dry years. Most landslides occur in April and May. Thousands of landslides — active and inactive — exist along the Wasatch Front. State geologists say landslides are not inherently unstable but “moderately stable at best.” Which areas are prone to slid...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Since the Seeley Wildfire burned more than 48,000 acres in Huntington Canyon near State Road 31 two years ago, the scar has been remarkably prone to debris flows, said National Weather Service hydrologist Brian McInerney. Monday’s storms caused the 24th such flow, closing the high...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.
