house three died inside smashed

This house was smashed completely by the second landslide that came off a knife edge ridge logged eight years previously. A teenage girl survived by running out of the house in her bare feet. Her parents and a neighbor who were also in the house encouraged her, but did not succeed in outrunning the slide themselves. The survivors sued Champion who had sent roped in loggers to cut the old-growth on both sides of the ridge above their houses. The father who died had warned Champion of the danger before they logged. Seven inches of rain fell in 12 hours just before the slides gave way. This is a high but not unusual amount of rain for a winter storm on the Oregon Coast. To give an idea of the force of the storm waters, a small safe that was in this house was found 50 miles away just north of the mouth of the Umpqua River a day or two later.
