landslide between Redway and Garberville

Here are some photos from a landslide possibly triggered by the M 6.9 earthquake. It would be difficult to determine if this was caused by the rainfall or by the earthquake. Given that there were only a few landslides across the landscape, it is more likely these were caused by increased pore pressure due to the rain, rather than triggered failure from the earthquake. If the earthquake ground shaking were responsible, we might expect many more landslides across the entire landscape.
