Field Value
Title West Slide Area Two
Description By March 27, 1934 the slide material had slipped considerably. Note how the earth had flowed as the excavating equipment removed the supporting base. Drilling operations for exploring the water seams are just getting started. Landslide picture the following day shows dramatic movement in the top soil that would eventually have to be completely excavated.
