Dozens of New York Residents Displaced after Landslide into Crater

Several residents were evacuated in upstate New York Sunday after a landslide took place and left homes dangerously dangling close to the edge of a cliff.

Photos of the area in Waterford, located roughly 11 miles northeast of Albany, showed trees that were uprooted, a driveway destroyed, and one of the homes just inches away from falling into the crater.

According to the authorities, 150 feet of land slid into the crater, and there was a high probability that more were to fall.

Several residents were displaced after the incident, and fortunately, they were able to find temporary places to reside.

One person needed help to get out of his home after debris fell onto his driveway, and they were unable to access the road.

Officials confirmed that there were no injuries or loss of structures reported.

Police officers used a drone to assess damages caused, and this allowed responders to maintain a safe distance from the collapse.

The cause of the landslide was yet to be known.
