Description

This investigation began with the deaths of sixteen people who were killed when heavy rains caused an avalanche of mud and rock in the San Bernadino Mountains. The report found that corrupt politicians carelessly put thousands of lives at risk by pushing for development in areas prone to floods and fires. The report looks at the corrupt political history that resulted in the current situation, as well as potential problems that could occur in the future. As more and more people move into the San Bernadino-Riverside area, the risk of future disasters becomes even greater.
