Video of the Redway Landslide Crushing Two Businesses

At approximately 11:40 a.m. today, the rain saturated hillsides of Southern Humboldt collapsed in the 3300 block of Redwood Drive near the north end of Redway.

People in the buildings at first thought a tree was falling, then that an earthquake had hit. They fled. One person fell as he left the business and struck his head receiving a minor injury.

The video shows only a part of the slide. Go here for more photos and information. Currently, power is out to approximately 2500 residents of the town and surrounding areas.

Several major roads are closed and some populated areas are without access to the outside world.  Closed Roads Include: Hwy 36, Mattole, Briceland Thorn and Redwood Drive
