Buncombe County Landslide

Starnes Cove Home Destroyed by
Landslide. Resident was in the house at the
time and survived. The debris flow also
destroyed the garage of the house immediately
downstream. Photos compliments of the North Carolina

The steep slopes and fragile soils of Western North Carolina
place Buncombe County at high risk of a landslide. Buncombe
