Fatal Landslide Triggered by Hurricane Ida

Fatal landslide in George County, Mississippi after Hurricane Ida, credit Travis Long

A portion of the embankment on MS26 in George County Mississippi failed after heavy rains and flooding caused by Hurricane Ida. It created a hole about 20 feet deep and 50 feet across late on Monday night, and I can imagine it was difficult for motorists to see until it was too late. There were approximately 7 cars that fell into the crater, 2 fatalities, and 10 injuries with 3 of those listed in critical condition. More info at the Sun Herald. Credit to the Landslide Blog.
