Is mudslide and mudflow the same?

Q: Is mudslide and mudflow the same?

A: Mudflows are often called mudslides. But the mudslide and mudflow aren't same thing.

Mudslide is a geological disaster in which large amount of mud moves rapidly down. The mudslides don't contain enough liquid to seep into the property. While mudflow is mainly caused by heavy rainfall carrying mud and water.
