Homes Evacuated in Jackson Wyoming as Ground Shifts

Benito Baeza

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Dozens of Jackson, Wyo., residents who were evacuated after land began shifting on a hillside in the resort town are waiting to find out if and when they can return home.

Assistant Town Manager Roxanne Robinson said Thursday there is still no word what is causing the land to shift, but officials have taken steps to ensure there is no catastrophe. Geologists are on the scene. About two dozen people went to the Red Cross to get shelter. Police say they talked to 52 people, and some evacuees say they were told authorities are not returning until it is safe. Ground movement over the weekend caused water pipes to break at the town’s pump station, and visible fissures have formed in the hillside.
