【Abstract】With the increasing of extreme rainfall frequency, landslides accompanied by mudslides often lead to serious casualties and property damage. On 3rd July 2021, a debris flow occurred in Izu Mountain area, Shizuoka County, Japan, and then resulted in 26 deaths and 131 houses destroyed, where houses were mainly built along the banks of the creek. In order to analyse the landslide state and distribution, a two-dimensional debris flow dynamic model (Massflow)was selected to simulate the process of the landslide-generated debris flow. When the model results are considered together with remote sensing images, the volume distribution of the unstable landslide is also able to be determined. The results show that (1) the affected areas aremainly concentrated at the outfall of the gully and on both sides of the streets. (2) The pore pressure ratio is an important factor affecting the damage range of this debris flow. (3) The increase of the pore pressure ratio in the landslide makethe movement distance of debris flow increase significantly.
