Home that slid off foundation torn down

The effects of a powerful storm that hammered the area last November were still being felt yesterday, when crews began tearing down an Aberdeen house that slid off of its saturated foundation and was in danger of slipping down a steep hillside.

City of Aberdeen inspectors declared the house on the 600 block of Stewart Boulevard a dangerous building after the storm and no one has lived there since. The house and property are still owned by former resident Sharon Stanley, who now lives in Ocean Shores, said Bob Waite, director of building and permitting at the City of Aberdeen.
