No Change In Ridge After Weekend Of Monitoring
The experts continued a weekend of monitoring the big crack on top of Rattlesnake Ridge. The land is still moving at 1.7 feet per week to the South. Trevor Contrares with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources says they have plenty of ways of gaining information on the anticipated slide and plenty of equipment monitoring the sight. "We have GPS monitoring equipment and plenty of experts looking at that data." He says its still expected to move to the South into the nearby quarry. And while they expect it to go to the South they're prepared for the slide to hit I-82 or the Yakima River.
