With all due respect and sincere condolences, how can it be completely surprising that a big home of considerable weight, which is built on a steep hillside with no trees or foliage with deep root to hold soil on what appears to be a considerable slope might not be secure? This takes me back to our castles on the beach: one good wave and they're gone. Some places are just not smart to build on.
