A burn is a type of skin lesion caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, light, radiation or friction.    Most burns affect only the skin (epidermis and dermis).
Rarely, the deeper tissues such as muscles, bones and blood vessels, may also be injured. Burns can be treated with first aid in an environment outside the hospital, or may require more specialized treatment,
such as those available in specialized burn center.
The management of burns is important because they are common, painful and can lead to disfiguring and disabling scars, amputation of affected parts or death in severe cases.
EarthSky spoke with Scott Burns. He is a geologist and landslide expert at Portland State University. He said: It’s like a baseball analogy.
Three strikes and you’re out. In general, you will have a fairly steep slope. That is one.The strike is weak soils and weak geological units, the rocks. What the site is central to the failure.
All you have to do is add the trigger. The third attack is usually a large amount of water that rain has fallen in a very short period of time, or an earthquake. Three strikes you’re out – and have a landslide.
Burns said that landslides occur throughout the world. But most of the time, people are not prepared for them. And so we have a lot of loss of life that not only want have.In U.S. Each year, landslides cause an average of 25 deaths and 1 to 2 million in damages, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. EarthSky Burns said:
For example, as homeowners, usually the most important element that has to be going home.
And if your home if beaten or slides down the hill, all is lost.
