Landslide in JH threatening the new Walgreens and its sign

I doubt it is making national news, but lots of regional news casts are carrying this story.

A large chunk of a hillside along the highway is falling into and under the parking lot at the new Walgreen's store here in Jackson Hole. The power of the slide is pushing a town pump house towards the street and past the Walgreen's sign. Their sign is leaning badly now. You can probably see it in the streaming live video. Yesterday, there was a big crowd of people watching the dirt slide.

There's a house on the top of the current break that is now split in two.

Here's a shot of the Walgreens sign taken just after lunch time today.

I added this shot and quite a few more on my Photography Blog at:

It also has links to articles and streaming videos.

Yes, it is getting some national news, even from the land of shakes. When the earth moves, nothings going to stop it.

Here's a photo of the house in a local paper, San Francisco Chronicle, probably the same as run in Jackson Hole.
