Massive landslide threatens homes on Whidbey Island in Washington state – Dan Simon reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

A massive landslide in Washington has destroyed one home and threatens more than a dozen others, an official and CNN affiliates in the Seattle area reported Wednesday.

One home has only about 10 feet of its backyard left after the slide on Whidbey Island, north of Seattle, CNN affiliate KIRO reported. That home's resident was able to escape, said Ed Hartin, fire chief at Central Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue.

No injuries have been reported.

The landslide cut access to 17 homes, and residents have been taken out by boat, Hartin said. Others area homes also were evacuated.
