Slow-moving landslide in Wyoming resort town destroys home

Slow moving landslide threatens businesses and homes in Jackson Hole, WyomingA slow-moving landslide claimed a house in Jackson, Wyoming as crews scrambled to prevent a water main from rupturing and flooding the affluent resort town with two million gallons of water, a city manager said Saturday. The landslide, which has prompted the evacuations of homes, apartment buildings and businesses, has picked up speed, doubling its acceleration since early April and speeding significantly in recent days, the town of Jackson said at the weekend. A house at the highest point of a residential development on the hill's east face was torn in two late Friday as the ground beneath it dropped an estimated 20 feet, said Roxanne Robinson, the town's assistant manager.
