Residents Can Return After Whidbey Island Slide
SEATTLE (AP) — Some residents evacuated from hillside homes on Washington state's Whidbey Island after a large landslide are being told they can return, now that geologists have taken a preliminary look at the area. One house was knocked off its foundation and 33 others were evacuated after the slide hit early yesterday. Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue Chief Ed Hartin says residents of 15 homes were told Wednesday evening they could return if they wished. No injuries have been reported.
