As Cracks Widen In Washington State, Government Prepares For Landslide

"Nearly 70 people live on a sliver of land wedged between Interstate 82 and Rattlesnake Ridge in central Washington state. A massive chunk of the ridge is moving, and cracking, and geologists say it will likely cause a landslide.

In a depression below the cracked ridge just east of the interstate, two firefighters go door to door among mobile homes, trying to get residents to leave quickly in case a landslide destroys their homes.

One of the residents, farmworker Janeth Solorio, says it's a difficult time."
