Abstract

This report presents the findings of a detailed study of a landslide (Incident No. 2008/06/0156) that occurred on 7 June 2008 on the natural hillside behind Rockwin Court, Fung Fai Terrace, Happy Valley. Both Landslip Warning and Black Rainstorm Warning were in effect at the time of the failure. The landslide involved a failure volume of about 500 m3 with a runout distance of about 55 m. The landslide debris was mainly deposited on the cut slopes at the toe of the hillside. Some debris came to rest at the rear of Rockwin Court, as well as at the rear alleyway of the adjacent Celeste Court. No casualties were reported as a result of the landslide, however residents in nine flats of Rockwin Court were temporarily evacuated.
