Our earth is a dynamic place, with daily movements and
changes to the ground below and the surface we live on. These movements and
changes create geological hazards —phenomena that can impact safety of
people and property. Around Alabama,
populations can be at risk from a variety of geological hazards including
sinkholes, earthquakes, and landslides.
