Debris flows, landslides, and mud flows are rivers of rock, earth, and other debris saturated with water. In areas burned by forest and brush fires, a lower threshold of precipitation may initiate them. Rainfall can run off almost instantly. Additionally, the soils in a burn scar are highly erodible so flood waters can contain significant amounts of mud, boulders, and vegetation.

Always check the weather and roads before you go! Remain alert & aware of your surroundings. Avoid low-lying areas during heavy rainfall. Listen for unusual sounds that might indicate moving debris. Do not camp or park near streams and washes, during threatening conditions. Be especially careful at night, when it is harder to recognize danger. Pictures from U.S.G.S. and NOAA
