East Hoquiam landslide cleared

March 5, 2014

An East Hoquiam landslide has been cleared according the Hoquiam Fire Department.

The landslide on Broadway occurred early this morning, and crews were able to clear the roadway by 6am.

Residents should exercise caution as the extreme amount of rainfall this past week has increased the risk of landslides locally.

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Special Weather Statement after 1 to 3 inches over the past couple days has increased soil moisture to high levels.

Additional heavy rainfall of 2 to 4 inches is expected Wednesday into Thursday. This amount of rain will put extra pressure on soil instability leading to an increased risk of landslides.
