The monitoring continues Today of the growing crack on top of Rattlesnake Ridge. Geologists with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources say they're not worried about a big landslide happening anytime soon. In fact last week the Director of the Yakima Valley Office of Emergency Management Jeff Emmons told reporters they don't know when the slide will happen. "Maybe in a couple of months"
All the indications from another weekend of monitoring show the slide is still slowly moving to the South at between 1.6 and 1.7 feet per week with no increase in acceleration. Officials are providing once a week updates. The next happens on Wednesday.
