Landslides are the movement of masses of rock, debris, or earth down a slope due to gravity – cause serious problems for many countries around the world.

Fortunately, this geological phenomenon is not common in Azerbaijan, but the country still has some landslide zones.

In January, the landslides intensified in the village of Nubar, Khatai district. Landslide activity was also observed in the village of Nubar, Khatai district.

The activity of landslide zones were also observed in Binagadi district of Baku, some areas of Mashtaga village in Sabunchu district, Savalan settlement, Shusha town, located in Yeni Ramana settlement and Mirza Ibrahimov street in Masazir village of Absheron.

The activation of landslide areas on the Degadi-Palikesh highway was recorded as well.

Landslide activity was observed on the sections of the Jalilabad-Jangan-Soltankend and Khizi-Altiaghach highways.

Moreover, landslide areas intensified in the Shabran and Siyazan regions as well as on the Guba-Khinalig highway.

Landslides usually occur on valley slopes or river banks, in the mountains, on seashores, and even on the seabed. Scientists believe that human activity is the reason for 80 percent of the landslides, as their agricultural activity increases the risk of landslides.
