Washington official knew for years about report warning of landslides
from The Wall Street Journal
A Snohomish County official was aware at least eight years ago of a geological report warning of the potential for a "large catastrophic failure" where the deadly March 22 landslide occurred. A county engineering geologist referenced the 1999 report in preparation for a presentation for homeowners here following a smaller 2006 landslide. His notes summarize the key points of the report, but make no mention of the catastrophic warning.
