Three houses in the Valley View neighborhood were red-tagged by the city of Everett. One of these three houses slid down the bank, and the others are deemed to be unsafe. The culprit was excess water known as 'Armaggeddon Creek'. The water is racing down the sandy loam soils of the bank, which has up to 40% slope causing landslides.

Here is the excerpt from Kiro7:

"Neighbors in an Everett neighborhood nicknamed "Armageddon Creek" by the people who live there because houses are slipping down a hillside said the city is to blame for the shifting ground.

The shifting hillside is near Panaview Boulevard and Burl Place in Everett.

The stairs on the side of one home that has nearly slipped off a steep hill used to lead to the front door, but now appear to be going nowhere.

Three houses have been red tagged by the city, meaning it is unsafe to occupy the homes. But neighbors claim 10 more houses in the area are in danger.

Video from Chopper 7 showed how the ground is moving and deep cracks opening in the yards and foundations of homes."
