Landslide ruins home in Salt Lake

SALT LAKE CITY, UT — A little bit of dirt sliding down a hill seems like no big deal, right?

Well, it’s actually earth shattering, like literally shattering the earth in one Salt Lake City neighborhood.  Video of the landslide makes it look completely minor, but at this point, one house is all but completely ruined, four more houses are in danger and about 30 have been evacuated.

Digging for a new lot at the top of the hill is reportedly to blame. At this point, crews are moving soil around to try to relieve pressure and get the trickle of terror to stop.
