  • Your what hurts??
I'm amazed that the County granted building permits for some of those houses considering not only the reports dating back to the fifties, but a long history of slides in and around that area.  As I understand it so far, it was a matter of time and the accumulation of sufficient water to make this one come down.  From what I have been reading the geology was well understood.
