Home Crumbles in Utah Landslide

August 6, 2014

A home is destroyed and neighbors are being evacuated after a landslide in North Salt Lake.

The home on Parkway Drive crumbled after rain-saturated soil from the hill above started piling up behind it at around 6 a.m. Tuesday. The hill is located above the Eagle Ridge Tennis and Swim Club.

Images showed the beige, two-story home pushed onto the driveway and over large landscaping rocks. Walls were ripped from the roof and windows were blown out.

Police told residents to leave the area as the slide worsened.

No injuries have been reported.
