March Mudslide Madness
A crazy disater that could've been avoided
A Terrible Thing To Occur In Washington
What All Happened
It Wasn't Sturdy In The First Place
When the houses in the area were being built, people had already known that hillside above Stillaguamish River wasn't sturdy enough to build on with land of just sand and gravel. As a result the march rain waterlogged the hill and created lots of pressure and mud. The hillside caved in and dammed the river. It's safe to say that building houses on a loose hillside is like pulling too many blocks out of a game of Jenga.
