JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Dozens of people who have homes near the slow-moving landslide in Jackson are worried about how they’ll get by during the emergency response.

The Jackson Hole Daily (https://bit.ly/1m7PMKN) reports many who live on East Gros Ventre Butte have been bouncing between friends’ homes, hotels and a shelter without any idea of how long they’ll be out of their homes.

Since it’s offseason in a tourist town, many don’t have steady work.

An evacuation order is lifted for most residents but other homes remain closed off because of plans to build a buttress aimed at temporarily slowing the ground movement.

In addition, four businesses have been shut down. The owner of three of them, Joe Rice, says 70 of his employees are out of work but he expects to reopen Friday.
