Task Report landslides within the United States.
Where Online only United States
Description

"Did You See It?" is a new crowd sourcing initiative launched by the U.S. Geological Survey's Landslide Hazards Program to collect data about the occurrence of landslides within the United States.

Landslides are a serious geologic hazard common to almost every State in the United States.

The information will not only help scientists better understand the causes of landslides, possibly leading to improved disaster mitigation strategies, but also serve as public resource to educate citizens about potential risks in their communities.

How to Join

The USGS invites anyone who has seen a landslide to report it to the Landslide Hazards Program: http://landslides.usgs.gov/dysi/form.php. Use the map to pinpoint your exact location within the United States and enter a description of the event by filling out the accompanying form to the best of your knowledge.
