Gov. Mead Tours Jackson Landslide Zone

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says after touring a slow-moving landslide in Jackson he wants to help local officials defray the cost of the disaster.

Efforts to slow the slide by hauling in tons of dirt and rock appear to be working. Ground movement has slowed to just a tenth of an inch per day — much less than a surge April 17 and 18 that sheared one house in two.

Mead said after touring the slide zone Monday he can’t promise anything, but several federal and state agencies could potentially help with emergency grants.

He says costs since April 4 have topped $600,000 and likely will exceed $1 million.

Residents of 42 houses and apartment units remain either evacuated from their homes or able to reach them only on foot.
