Paper Number: ISRM-IS-2000-318
.... These port facilities need to be located along coastal zones with easy access to seas and oceans, and are nearly always located in areas underlain by deep soft marine deposits and include significant amounts of land reclamation. From a geotechnical design perspective, this results in challenging projects...

If a landslide is recognized in a dam foundation or abutment, the landslide deposits commonly are avoided in siting the dam...

Three recent catastrophies are also mentioned, among many others that are left out, to show that the phenomenon is continuing. Risks are high both in cases of naturally deposited loose silty sands...
