Transcript for Landslide Evacuations as Homes Teeter on the Edge Near Seattle
And to the north in Washington state tonight, a massive landslide outside Seattle. Homes teetering on the edge there. Several homes have already been evacuated there, as well. ABC's Neal Karlinsky this evening with one family whose home is right on the edge. Reporter: It is a slow motion disaster. Three homes, teetering on the edge of a bluff south of Seattle, that's sliding away, chunk by chunk. That white piece of a deck about halfway down, that's part of Gary Williams' house. Is it okay to be out here? Sure. Reporter: Williams let us in during the few short hours he's been allowed back inside to pack up everything he owns, and get out. It started over here. And I could hear it rustling like a dog going through the brush. Reporter: Pictures of the bluff before and after give you a sense of how much Earth has moved. Three homes are now red tagged, meaning the owners can't stay here. You can see where the Earth is pulling away. Here and here, it's actually separating and down there in the green grass, you can see chunks just cracking away. It started Friday night and hasn't settled yet. City officials say they've been sending boats to monitor the bluff. You can see where the bulk of the Earth and trees have come pouring down here. The homes up top there, they are definitely a total loss. The question now is, will they come down this hillside, as well?
