For decades Rockville has been beset with problems, including pioneer families
being flooded out time after time by the Virgin River. I wish there were more
zoning studies done so building was prohibited in such disaster-prone areas.
There have been mudslides along the Wasatch Front which have damaged or
destroyed homes built on steep slopes. How come no building restrictions were in
place in those places - makes you wonder who's in charge??
Some pricey real estate close to the entrance of Zion's National Park.Hope those folks can figure out how to be compensated for their property.No one wants to be the recipient of what happened previously there in
See . . . more proof that we need to outlaw rocks.
I hope the residents and the City of Rockville follow the advice of the UGS. If
the town and residents of Oso, WA had followed the advice of the geologic report
prepared almost 20 years ago, the recent mudslide would have been a big mess,
but not a horrible disaster. Please please please--listen and follow this
advice. It may not happen next week or next year, but it will happen. Please
move out of the way of the rockfall, and please, City of Rockville and State of
Utah, help those that have homes in the danger area move to safety. Don't
make them be trapped in a dangerous home that can't be sold, but that money
is owed on. Banks holding those mortgages--please cooperate! Hopefully things
can be transferred from this dangerous property to property in safety.
Don't sentence these people to death by tons of crushing rock because of
greed and bureaucracy.
Earthquakes are a sign of the times.
Those are big rocks.
