A landslide on Whidbey Island in Washington state pushed one home 200 feet out into the water and forced the evacuation of about 20 people, officials said.
Early Wednesday morning a 1,000-foot-wide section of a cliff on the island fell away, blocking the beach-side road below, The Seattle Times reported.
Police evacuated about a dozen people from homes below the cliff by boat because of the road blockage, KOMO-TV, Seattle, reported.

We must be careful about drawing conclusions about disasters and society....I realize that. But judgement, I believe, WILL come to America for the deaths of innocent unborn children, celebration of sodomy, and the incredible debt we are creating....as well as our shabby treatment of Israel.
This place voted 52% to approve sodomy, too, FWIW.
Did it actually go into the sea. I saw one sitting at the bottome of the cliff mostly in tact, having rode the slump down the hill without coming off its foundation (much).
I expect things to get a lot worse. I truly believe we are living in the end times.
Whidby Island, source for one of the finest Ruby Ports in the world! Wish I could find it here in E. TN
really? Do you believe God gives people cancer also?
The tax assessor will probably double their appraisal since they now have a beach front home.
Does anyone know if this house rode down with the slide or was it located at the bottom of the hill.
Going to goole earth to see if I can find out....

The only thing we can say for certain is that He permits it. Also that through their health problems, one way or another, many people who were not yet saved, become saved. Not everyone responds to things the same way, some people, this may be what gets them to come to God and be saved.
Whidbey Island is also home to the huge Naval Air Station and there are many military families there. Maybe they love Obama but maybe not.
I have good friends on Whidbey Island and they are not drooling liberals. Your statements are idiotic.
Reading the headlines, I was hoping it was in Washington, DC and one white colored house...
It was short of halfway up the hillside and rode the earthen slide down.
North end is very conservative. South end; not so much.
Where do your friends live on Whidbey Island? I graduated from OHHS in ‘71 and my mom still lives there.
Just looking at the numbers...and I *did* qualify my statement.
See post 1 for my opinion.
