This report presents the findings of a review of a landslide cluster that occurred on the natural hillside above Tai O San Tsuen, Tai O, Lantau Island. The landslides were reported on the morning of 7 June 2008 following very heavy rainfall. The incident involved five separate landslide areas, some with multiple sources. The total failure volume involved was about 1000 m³. Much of the debris was deposited at the toe of the hillside with a small proportion remaining on the hillside. No casualties were reported as a result of the landslides.

The key objectives of this review were to document the facts about the landslides, including relevant background information and pertinent site observations made under this review.
