Two Houses Collapse in Landslide Along Tennessee River

Two houses collapsed into the Tennessee River as landslides hit the Morris Chapel area of Tennessee’s Hardin County over the weekend, according to the county’s fire department.

Authorities had warned on February 15 that both houses were in danger of collapsing. One of the homes was vacant while the homeowners of the other property were evacuated by firefighters.

The vacant house collapsed down the banks into the Tennessee River about an hour after the homeowners of the other house were evacuated.

Footage released by the fire department shows the vacant home collapsing down a cliff.

Fire officials said the second home was also swept into the river by Sunday afternoon. Credit: Hardin County Fire Department via Storyful
