COUPEVILLE, Wash. (AP) — Owners of about two dozen homes that have been cut off or threatened by a massive landslide in Washington state are worried about their property.
More than 60 people attended a Thursday night community meeting with officials to discuss some of the effects of the landslide Wednesday on Whidbey Island that displaced 200,000 cubic yards of earth, or about 40,000 dump truck loads.
A spokesman for Island County, Christopher Schwarzen, says residents want to know when they can get back into their homes. They're also worried about looters.
The sheriff's office plans extra patrols.
Twenty properties on a scenic island hillside were damaged by the slide, with some suffering structural damage and others losing portions of their yards.
