A second landslide in a Flathead Valley neighborhood has left residents even more fearful than the first.
The first slide happened in 2010, near Whitefish Stage and Bruyer Road. The second slide, which started in June, is just a few hundred feet to the north of that one. Recent rains have made it worse.
Residents like Janet Rodeghiero are anxious.
"I am concerned for all of us. It isn't just right below one person's property and it can cover and impact a lot of people. It’s a very complicated issue and I think a lot of people should take more interest in it," Rodeghiero said.
Rodeghiero is no stranger to the problem. She’s lived in the neighborhood since the first slide started in 2010.
That’s when neighbors took action. They received a $300,000 federal emergency grant to repair it. But the county backed out of the deal.
NBC Montana tried to contact representatives from the Flathead County Commissioner's office, but no calls were returned.
"The more time we waste, the worse it’s going to get," Rodeghiero said.
Residents also took legal action. There has been no settlement and nothing has been repaired yet.
Now the new slide is threatening more homes.
One homeowner who lives above one of the slides says, because it has taken the county so long to repair the first slide, he’s worried the second slide will never get repaired.
Other residents are not that concerned.
"I don't think too much about it. I don't lose any sleep on it...You're a little bit curious as to what will happen in the future...We've been here a long time and we've seen no movement ourselves,” said Doug Johns.
Johns questions if he would have just paid someone to fix the problem himself.
“It could occur again, but I’m not particularly concerned about it. I’ll take responsibility for our own property. I’m going to ask for assistance from somebody else,” Johns said.
Residents say they are still negotiating with the county and are hoping a deal is made soon to fix both slides.
