Henderson County Landslide

Left: View looking down the track of the Bear Rock
debris flow. Right: Initiation zone of debris flow where
the subdivision road crosses a drainage. Unstable slope
remains at the head of the debris flow. Multiple generations
of cracks in the pavement indicates road subsidence at this
location prior to the debris flow. Photos compliments of the North
