Video: Londa and Bret Edwards were clearing debris from Idaho's Highway 14 when things took a serious turn. Within the span of a few minutes, all hell breaks loose, with huge boulders and trees tumbling down onto the only road in or out of Elk City, Idaho, leaving the town's residents stranded and without power. The landslide was later declared a disaster by officials and it will cost an estimated $US1.5 million to clear the 6m deep pile of rubble blocking Highway 14. A small forest path has been cleared for limited use while the larger cleanup takes place. Thankfully, Londa, Bret and the other Idaho Transportation Department workers present were not injured.
