The paper deals with slope movements activated by the extreme precipitations of July 1997. The research was centred on slope deformations in the Vsetín district, eastern Moravia, in an area belonging to the system of the Outer Western Carpathians. The Vsetín district was one of the most affected by the slope deformations with more than 500 localities of activated slope failures recorded so far. As to the character of the slope movements, landslides seem to prevail, together with earth flows and rockfalls. The slope failures disturbed the landscape infrastructure. The impact on the area of landsliding had the character of small natural hazards. The important landslide localities in the Vsetín district are presented and the human impact on landsliding is described.
