North Lilliwaup Landslides
During an aerial reconnaissance on December 10th, we documented two landslides along Highway 101. The landslides appeared to have covered part of Highway 101 and most likely were landslides within thin soils overlying bedrock, which was a common theme during the storm event.

Figure 1: This small landslide, which is dead center in the photo, is located just north of Eagle Creek. It appears to have blocked at least one lane of Highway 101 but had been cleared. Note the bedrock exposure in a similar but older landslide to the far left of the photo. Click on photo to view larger image. (photo by Kelsay Davis)
Figure 2: Looking towards Lilliwaup Bay, note the small landslide just left of the rectangular black rock area above the road (mitigated landslide). The larger landslide to the right, which has been mitigated, was a landslide that failed during the 1999 storm event that also triggered the Jorsted Creek landslide.
