It has been over 1 year since an excavation for a new Wal-Mart store in Kilbuck Township, PA caused a massive landslide that closed Route 65 for two weeks, and temporarily closed a rail line as well. Strong storms last month apparently caused an increase in the rate of movement of the now instrumented slide. The state DEQ feels the movement is deep-seated, but Wal-Mart disagrees. See our previous coverage or go to the video from the local CBS affiliate or news and photos from the local ABC affiliate.
A landslide in Logan Utah caused a portion of a canal to fail, causing a second mudslide. Three people, a mother and two children, were believed to be buried when the mud and debris hit their home. Rescue efforts were halted fairly quickly because of concern regarding the stability of the hillside. So far I have not read any reports that the bodies have been recovered. Map, Videos and more after the break. (Photo by Mike Terry, Deseret News, hat tip to Landslides Under a Microscope Blog)
