LAND/MUD slide information:
In 2018 Polk County experienced multiple land/mud slides due to extreme amounts of rainfall within relative short periods causing a fatality in addition to property damages etc. The North Carolina Geological Survey with the Department of Environmental Quality and the Division of Energy, Minerals and Land Resources is tasked with tracking such movements and has published a WEBSITE for those interested in this data for considerations of planning, land purchases, construction etc.
