CAIC Comments

CAIC forecasters spoke with area mine workers and the location of this slide is adjusted from the Waterhole as originally reported to the Hayden Path. Same area just one path further to the east. The starting zone mostly faces northeast and north. A similar slide occurred last week on January 27 and this one is a repeater. Runout hits creek in a location that is slightly farther from the Camp Bird road. Slide is also officially sized at D2. These paths produce large powder clouds that can travel far across the narrow canyon dusting the other side. This one left about 1 to 2 inches of powder cloud debris on the road.
