Landslide destroys homes – level 3

One house has been left severely damaged after a massive landslide in Whidbey Island in Washington State on Wednesday morning. The landslide also took out a road cutting off access to more than a dozen homes.

Fortunately, there were no injuries but the landslide cut off power and water supply to the area. According to reports residents heard a thunder like boom at around 4:15 am local time.

The landslide remains a threat to many other houses in the area and residents have been asked to evacuate the neighborhoods.

Interesting words: landslide (mass of earth moving down a slope), dozen (twelve), threat (something that could be dangerous).
