Report No. : GEO Report No. 26
Report Title : Report on the Rainstorm of August 1982 (1993), 93 p. plus 1 drg. (Reprinted, 1995)
Author : R.R. Hudson
The report was produced in 1982 as a permanent record of the effects of the rainstorms that occurred in the period of 15th to 19th of August 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.
