Earth opens up in massive landslide on Whidbey Island, off the coast of Washington




Posted on March 28, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol





March 28, 2013 WASHINGTONA
chunk of Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington slid into water
early this morning, forcing the evacuation of 34 homes. At one home at
the new cliff edge, a steady stream of soil can be seen leaking out from
beneath the building. Authorities are continuing to monitor a house
where there’s still slide activity, as dirt continues to slough off the
cliff, said Central Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue Chief Ed Hartin. Fire
and Rescue went to a home around 4 a.m. this morning in Coupeville on
Whidbey Island, Wash., to find it had been pushed off its foundation.
Hartin told ABCNews.com that when he arrived, the home was
already a considerable distance down the cliff by the water. The
landslide stretched across 400 to 500 yards and the earth dropped 600 to
700 yards down to the water, reported ABC’s Seattle affiliate KOMO,
with trees and tons of dirt smashing into homes down below and wiping
out a road. Somehow no one was injured. Hartin said rescuers used ATVs
to reach the home that had slid down the cliff. He said the residents
had escaped before the cliff dropped. Of the 34 homes being evacuated,
17 are below the cliff and were isolated, cut off from the rest of the
island by tons of rock, dirt and tress and wiped out the road as well as
electrical and water connections, said Hardin. Island County Sheriff
Mark Brown said these residents of these homes are being evacuated by
rescue boats to a temporary shelter. Another 17 homes on the top of the
cliff are also being evacuated, as many residents lost portions of their
waterfront property to the landslide, said Hartin. “Where the soil
dropped, it forms a sheer cliff,” said Brown. “At the top of that cliff,
you’ve got people’s backyard that went from 60 feet to now 10 feet.”
Whidbey Island is one of two islands in Island County, Wash. The area is
home to a mix of both year-long residents and vacation home owners.
“Landslides are not a total uncommon event on the island,” Hartin said.
Susan Berta, who lived on Whidbey Island for nearly 14 years, told
ABCNews.com that the geology of the island is “a constant slow moving
active landslide. When there’s a lot of moisture and freezing and
thawing – which we’ve been having — what happens is the water goes down
the clay layers (of the bluffs), and they become more liquid and just
start sliding.” The street that the landslide impacted “has sloughed off
and slid pretty much off and on for the last twenty years, said Berta,
who worked as a coordinator for a environmental program on the island
that taught volunteers about the geology of the island, bluffs, and
bluff erosion. “It’s not a surprise that it slid,” she said. “To me,
what’s shocking is that so much went so fast.” Berta said her friend’s
home on the cliff was impacted by the landslide, and she thinks he lost a
considerable portion of his backyard to the event. She and other
friends were trying to get together to help him clear out of the home,
she said. “I knew that someday, something like this would happen,” she
said. “I’m just shocked that so much of it went so quickly.” –ABC News
