MOUNTAINSIDE SLIPPING INTO WEST FORK VALLEY|
Hillside slip threatens two houses
Since last week when the Herald did a story about a large slip on Altizer Road, the slippage continues to worsen.
An entire section adjacent the roadway slip has widened.
The WV Department of Highways has placed new drainage and rock to allow traffic to flow, while the slip has damaged the residence of Josh Hall.
New slip has just appeared south of primary slip
Over the steep hillside is another residence, which appears to be in the path of the entire hillside slipping into bottom land along the West Fork of the Little Kanawha.
Those residents are reportedly packing to move, and the Josh Hall family is moving to another location, with one end of his house continuing to sink and water pipes breaking.
After one of the wettest years on record, another slip just south of the Hall house, has appeared on the roadway in the past few days.
