  1. 1. Mudflow Mitigation <ul><li>By: Josh Cho, Charles Wang, and Dylan Lien </li></ul>
  2. 2. Landslides and Mudflows <ul><li>Landslide - The downwards sliding of a relatively dry mass of earth and rock. </li></ul><ul><li>Mudflow - A downhill movement of soft wet earth and debris, made fluid by rain of melted snow and often building up great speed. </li></ul><ul><li>Lahar - a volcanic landslide or mudflow. </li></ul><ul><li>Avalanche - a type of slide characterized by the chaotic movement of rocks, soil and debris mixed with water and/or ice. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>Although landslides and mudflows don’t seem serious, it can be and is a serious problem in certain places. </li></ul><ul><li>Our goal is to raise awareness about this problem. </li></ul><ul><li>This is usually caused by heavy rain or snow melts- this results in huge boulders and chunks of dirt falling down a slope. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Introduction (continued) <ul><li>Mudflows are similar to landslides, just wetter. </li></ul><ul><li>travel up to 50 miles per hour. </li></ul><ul><li>These are very dangerous because they can crush trees, houses, and are even strong enough to kill innocent people. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Our Specific Topic <ul><li>prevention of mudflows and landslide </li></ul><ul><li>mitigation </li></ul><ul><li>to try and help our cause world-wide </li></ul>
  6. 6. Our Purpose <ul><li>helping to prevent and mitigate mudflows and landslides </li></ul><ul><li>they are often an overlooked natural disaster that causes major problems around the world </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Message (make bullet) <ul><li>People should be informed about the destruction of landslides and mudflows because not many people know about how landslides and mudflows happen and the damages they cause. </li></ul><ul><li>They can cause a numerous amount of deaths </li></ul><ul><li>We want to make people aware about the problem </li></ul>
  8. 8. Information <ul><li>A lot of landslides are related or caused by earthquakes. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the death of the Si Chuan earthquake was because the earthquake caused a landslide and crushed the victims in rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of mudflows are cause by heavy rains and floods. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Mission Statement <ul><li>What we are all about. </li></ul><ul><li>What we want to try to do. </li></ul><ul><li>Spreading the word. </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>The Power of the Landslides
  11. 13. Landslide and Mudflow Death Tolls <ul><li>2008 Cairo Landslide - 100 people </li></ul><ul><li>2007 Chittogong Mudflow - 128 people </li></ul><ul><li>2006 Southern Leyte mudslide - 256 students and 7 teachers </li></ul><ul><li>1999 Vargas mudslides - Lasted 3 days - 50,000 people </li></ul>

  13. 15. December 2008
  14. 16. Landslide Formation <ul><li>How a landslide gathers its rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>Mini- Activity </li></ul>
  15. 17. Action Plan <ul><li>Raise money to buy emergency kits </li></ul><ul><li>Propose idea to the USAID </li></ul><ul><li>Send emergency kits to the USAID </li></ul>
  16. 18. Our Goal <ul><li>To buy 3 emergency kits </li></ul><ul><li>to raise awareness of the problem </li></ul><ul><li>make sure that households where the problem is critical have emergency kits. </li></ul>
  17. 19. Emergency Kits <ul><li>Emergency Kits consist of: </li></ul><ul><li>2 Packets of crackers </li></ul><ul><li>2 bottles of mineral water </li></ul><ul><li>A flashlight </li></ul><ul><li>2 pairs of batteries </li></ul><ul><li>a travel blanket </li></ul>
  18. 20. <ul><li>1. Raise money to donate to organizations that help with the prevention and mitigation of landslides and mudflows </li></ul><ul><li>2. Educate people about the damages that landslides and mudflows cause. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Form a group based on the prevention and mitigation of landslides and mudflows. </li></ul>Short-Term Goal
  19. 21. Long-Term Goal <ul><li>1. Continue to raise money for donation to organizations. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Work with organizations that help with the prevention and mitigation of landslides and mudflows. </li></ul><ul><li>3. If there is an age minimum to work with organizations, then convince people that are above that age to contribute to the cause. </li></ul>
