A landslide is defined as the movement of a mass of rock, debris, or earth down a slope. Landslides are a type of “mass wasting,” which denotes any down-slope movement of soil and rock under the direct influence of gravity. The term “landslide” encompasses five modes of slope movement: falls, topples, slides, spreads, and flows. These are further subdivided by the type of geologic material (bedrock, debris, or earth). Debris flows (commonly referred to as mudflows or mudslides) and rock falls are examples of common landslide types.

Almost every landslide has multiple causes. Slope movement occurs when forces acting down-slope (mainly due to gravity) exceed the strength of the earth materials that compose the slope. Causes include factors that increase the effects of down-slope forces and factors that contribute to low or reduced strength. Landslides can be initiated in slopes already on the verge of movement by rainfall, snowmelt, changes in water level, stream erosion, changes in ground water, earthquakes, volcanic activity, disturbance by human activities, or any combination of these factors. Earthquake shaking and other factors can also induce landslides underwater. These landslides are called submarine landslides. Submarine landslides sometimes cause tsunamis that damage coastal areas.

After heavy rain and/or prolonged rain or tremors and shakes. After these, a landslide might occur. Do not panic, it is the worst mistake that you will do, stay calm, plan an evacuation plan. If you are inside a building, do not go out unless it is safe to do so. If you are at a river, prepare to evacuate the area. If you are driving, look out for debris

The answer is both. If there is heavy rain, then it will soften the soil which causes landslide, this is the nature’s doing. If we cut down trees, nothing will keep the soil hard, without the trees, there will be landslide. So it depends on what we do or the weather’s doing to create soil erosion/landslide.
