Heavy rain over a recently burnt area is ready to slide and now we have a very detailed way of looking at risk areas in a burnt area.

California Map and Data Society ESRI has overlaid the US Geological Society’s risk onto their maps so you can get a street-level glimpse of some of the risk areas.

Global landslide risk with 2018 fire perimeters

This app uses live NASA nowcast data for landslides that takes into account projected precipitation and a range of other factors to show susceptibility to landslides live. To help people better understand how this relates to the fires, they have also added the 2018 fire perimeters.

USGS Debris Flow Risk Assessment for Burnt Areas: Southern California

This app visualizes debris flow estimates for recent USGS burn areas. The map shows which parts of recent burn areas are at low, moderate or high risk of mudslides.
