Re: Whidbey Island Landslide
There was a lengthy report on King 5 last night...you really feel sorry for those folks. When you see the before pictures, the hillside is covered with trees and vegetation. Hard to believe the root systems wouldn't hold the hillside in place. General feeling is it's just a matter of time until the houses end up at the bottom of the cliff. Looking at the sheerness of the slope, it would appear it could retreat several hundred feet before it stabilizes.
Life happens...you control your reaction.
