The three homes that were the most impacted were evacuated.  Another five to eight residences were given voluntary evacuation information. The Red Cross is in the loop to provide accommodations if needed. 

There have been questions about whether the rains could have been a factor in the hillside conditions. The rains did play a role, as the ground has been saturated. At this point it is believed any movement at the site should be slow, if it moves any. Tomorrow, a geology engineer will be out to provide better intel for long term solutions/risk. Many of our hillsides can be a risk as wet as the winter has been.  That risk is low, but planning and development maintains maps of the area that indicate which soil types exist in certain areas that may be at higher risk.  


At 9:52 a.m. on March 10, callers reported a high retaining wall in the 3300 block of Videra Drive was tipping and pushing against the side of a home. Callers also reported a landslide with broken water lines and a possibly broken gas line. 

Eugene Springfield Fire, along with City of Eugene Public Works, NW Natural, and Eugene Water and Electric Board, have responded to the area. The utilities are working on the water and gas lines and Public Works is evaluating the landslide and surrounding areas.  Approximately eight residences have been evacuated due to the potential hazard. Eugene Police is providing traffic control in the area and helping notify nearby residents of the risk and voluntary evacuation.
