A mudflow or mudflow is a form of mass wasting involving “very rapid to extremely rapid surging flow” of debris that has become partially or fully liquified by the addition of significant amounts of water to the source material.

Everyone in the said areas is advised to take precautions as the mudflow can make roads slippery, which can road cause accidents.
