Giant Boulder Knocks Hole in Oregon House

January 11, 2013

A southern Oregon family says a refrigerator-sized boulder crashed into their manufactured home, leaving a giant hole in one wall and the huge rock in their living room.

The Klamath Falls Herald and News reports that no one was injured.

Corey and Jeanine Wells, their adult son and his pregnant fiancee were all in the Klamath County home along U.S. Highway 97 when the boulder hit on Tuesday.

Corey Wells says the house is likely destroyed and the family is “still in shock. Still spooked.”

Jeanine Wells says the family has lived safely at the base of a steep incline on the east side of Highway 97 for more than a decade.

She says that just before the boulder hit, one of the family’s horses “flattened his ears, stuck out his tail and took off.” She looked up and saw the giant rock headed for her house.
