Officials continue to assess a mudslide southwest of Carbondale. That’s where a miles long flow may have killed three men, and another there’s a risk of another slide coming down. Here in the Roaring Fork Valley, mudslides are also a factor-- especially in the Glenwood Springs area. Jonathan White is Senior Engineering Geologist with the Colorado Geologic Survey in Golden. He spoke with APR’s Elise Thatcher on how common mudslides are.
