FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WUSA9) -- Maryland's chief geologist said Tuesday a 1500 foot, slow-motion landslide that has forced the evacuation of 28 homes is still moving.
"You can measure it with a ruler," said Richard Ortt Jr.
The slide, which began moving substantially Friday, has dropped Piscataway Drive by as much as 4 feet, cut water and sewer lines, and brought down large trees that have crushed utilities in the area.
Four homes are directly threatened with possible damage if further shifting. Twenty-four others are cut off from utilities. All have been declared unlivable by the Prince George's County Department of Inspections Permitting and Enforcement
Meanwhile, Pepco crews turned off the power to all homes in the evacuation zone late Tuesday, said Scott Peterson, a spokesman for Prince George's County.
