West Virginia residents evacuate homes after landslide
CHARLESTON, W.V. - A landslide near a West Virginia airport has forced residents in about 25 Charleston homes to evacuate.
Media outlets report that the landslide began Sunday near the end of the main runway at Yeager Airport but reached a critical point mid-day Thursday.
The landslide broke loose, taking out power lines, trees, an unoccupied home, as well as a church. It also caused a nearby creek to rise.
The West Virginia National Guard urged area residents to evacuate and the West Virginia Division of Highways closed a portion of Keystone Drive.
