Slide area on Whidbey Island, WA. that has been on the news so much lately. This was taken from clear across the bay near the Fort Casey Fairy Docks. Look very closely at how much dirt went down the hill! That is 1/4th. mile of bluff that slid! Also look at how close it got to the houses!

The whole island is made up of base layers of Rock, gravel and clay. The geologists say that where it has been drier this year than normal the bonds between the 3 elements has dried up and unattached themselves from each other causing instability. Geologists are watching and gathering info daily about the area infected and fearing that another section of that hill side will let go!

down by my signature there is a house that is also in peril. I'll post a few other photos when I get them edited.
