Most likely scenario in Rattlesnake Ridge landslide

According to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the most likely scenario in the Rattlesnake Ridge landslide near Union Gap is that the landslide will slowly continue to move south, where the mass will fall into the quarry pit and accumulate.

In a less likely scenario, the landslide may move beyond the quarry and potentially damage houses to the south of the quarry and Thorp Road, and possibly reach I-82.

Geologists and engineers who are studying the landslide estimate an event will occur sometime in early March.
