A landslide - rockfall occurred about 1:30 am. Rocks collided with the home of Mr. Ralph Talbot and did extensive damage. Further rock slides appeared likely so the house was relocated. A gabion wall was constructed to protect the adjacent road. The cost of relocation was $15,000; and costs for construction of gabions and scaling of the slope were $25,000 for total of $40,000.
