Cedar Hills Mudslide

A break in the weather

Days and inches of rain over 5-10 to 5-12 caused considerable damage, but a couple days of sunshine made the slide stop again. The three pictures above show progress of the slide over a two week period since the initial slide occurred.

Check out the status and photo pages for more info.

Slide Movement

The county surveyors are monitoring the slide movement.

Stake movement graphs below chart the movement of the stakes since the initial slide. You can see that the movement from May 12 basically dwarfs all previous movement, which appears as a jumble of points and dates almost on top of each other. Movement since has been almost nothing.

The seemingly random movement in all directions on a couple of these reflects very slight movements or changes in readings. The movement distances are extremely small on those charts, which you can see by comparing the scale with the other charts.
