After a weekend with several inches of rain that caused a landslide in Bell County, Kentucky, UT geography professor Henri Grissino-Mayer warns of an increased risk of landslides as the rainy season continues, reports WBIR.

“Water breaks down solid things and it mixes with it and makes it more fluid. It becomes capable of flowing and moving. That includes rock, land soil, and then everything on it – trees, houses – anything,” said Grissino-Mayer.
