Mudslide Sends Home into Greers Ferry Lake

MARCH 31, 2005 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CST

 

BEE BRANCH, AR - A mudslide has carried away one-third of a home built above Greers Ferry Lake, destroying the house that a retired nurse built nine years ago.  Shirley Bradford said she built the house to retire in, and now there's nothing.

The slide early Monday carried away part of the garage, a bathroom and a home office.  Bradford said a geologist who had inspected the site said there's a good likelihood the rest will end up off the mountain and in the lake the next time there is a good rain.

A family friend, Jim Black of Bee Branch, said he was in the living room early Monday when he noticed a crack, and the house began to come apart.  He said he got his phone and went out the door, to the accompaniment of cracking and popping that he said sounded like guns and bombs going off.
