    Same thing happened in Port Orchard twice! Mud side mixed with trees slid off the bank and onto the two-lane road below. The 2nd time it happened it killed a woman visiting from Hawaii whose car got buried in the debris! It took her death for the county to fix it with tons of crushed rock. I won't travel in or out of Port Orchard using that route because the road beneath the slide area is caving in. Not sure I trust those hunks of rocks to stay put either.
