Author : M.C. Tang
This report was produced in 1982 as a permanent record of the effects of the rainstorms that occurred in the period of 28th to 31st of May 1982 with particular emphasis on the location, type and size of the more serious landslide incidents. It is a factual report and, apart from acknowledging that the landslides were caused by intense rainfall, does not attempt to explain the mechanisms and causes of failure. The report was the first of this kind that has been produced by the Geotechnical Engineering Office.
