|0||Area not a landslide (may be unaffected region within a landslide)|
|1||Landslide triggered by Hurricane Mitch|
|9||Landslide that is believed to have been triggered by Hurricane Mitch but was not field-checked.|
The coverage shows the distribution of slope failures and the associated deposits caused by Hurricane Mitch in El Salvador. The cover included maps of these features in widely separated parts of the country. The maps provide an inventory of these features and also contain a few recent landslides that predate the hurricane. When data from this inventory is combined with geotechnical data on the physical properties of material on hill slopes, the hillslope form, and rainfall intensity and duration information, this coverage can be used as a basis for evaluating landslide susceptibility in similar areas of the country.
