The landslide in Jackson, Wyoming has slowed back down to three inches per day, after seeing a temporary surge of 1.5 feet per day over the weekend.

Monday geologist began drilling four holes to try to find out what's causing the slide and to help identify long term solutions and mitigation efforts. Town officials also announced a small parking structure is the latest victim the landslide. Part of a two-story parking garage serving a restaurant and other businesses has shifted by about three or four inches. They say workers will try to shore up the structure so it won't collapse.

Other casualties so far include one home that was ripped in two and has been condemned, four other homes, two apartment buildings, and several businesses remain evacuated while road damage has blocked access to about 30 other homes.
