Landslide up the road

I've been talking about rain for the last couple of months; apparently a mile-long section of hillside just up the road from me gave way and killed 2 and destroyed 6 houses.  I noticed a whole bunch of sirens and helicopters this morning when I was doing the chores but figured it was a  house fire or something.

They're reporting that the river channel is blocked and water is backing up behind it, so we may get a flash flood when that gives way.  So I'm watching the river level and hoping that more folks don't die.

New story here
