Rockfall - Damages 
 
Rockfalls can demolish structures and kill people. Rocks falling on highways may strike vehicles, block traffic, cause accidents, and sometimes damage the road. Minor but costly consequences is the work of clearing highways and borrow ditches in rockfall areas. Any structure in the path of a large rockfall is subject to damage or destruction.
