WATERFORD - A Waterford neighborhood remains on edge after a landslide on Sunday.

Part of a driveway on Middletown Road collapsed down a ridge about 80 feet into a canal below. Engineers are using stakes to see if the ground moves any further. The call to police and the fire department came in at 3:30 Sunday afternoon.


First responders arrived and quickly started evacuating homes near the 150 feet of land that had broken away.

No one was hurt, but four houses are still evacuated. That's 12 people who were displaced.
