Soil Expert Speaks on Johnsons Landing Landslide

The search at Johnsons Landing in southeast BC  has now resumed. It had been put on hold earlier today, due to further landslides. Geo-technicians and landslide experts have determined it is safe enough for search and rescue personnel to resume their work. Yesterday, a massive slide rolled down the mountain, wiping out three homes, cutting off access to parts of the community and leaving four people unaccounted for. Greg Utzig owns a cabin in Johnsons Landing.
He also happens to be a soil specialist. He joined us from Nelson.
