NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) - The Utah Geological Survey has found that the site of a destructive landslide two years ago has shifted a total of six inches.

North Salt Lake Mayor Len Arave says the Geological Survey has been monitoring the hill since the slide and that they detected movement in two spots since October.

No one was hurt when the hillside tumbled on Aug. 5, 2014, in the upscale subdivision about 10 miles north of Salt Lake City. One family was displaced after their home was destroyed.

Arave says the slide originated 80 feet below the surface and any movement at depth is cause for concern, but for now the main body of the landslide is very stable.
