landslides.

The forming of landslides are listed here.

First, pressure is pushed onto higher ground.

Second, the higher ground starts collapsing to lower ground while moving at a high velocity.

Finally, the landslide stops at the bottom of the hill or mountain, usually destroying many things along the way.

There is a warning system for landslides. It works when a system measures the water level in the ground, how high slopes are, and finally the stability of hills and potential landslide areas. Then using a three-dimensional mathematical model it evaluates potential for a landslide. A warning message is then sent to a website and also to civilian smartphones.
