  • Area has had lots of rain, sits on fault line

Nearly 20 homes are in danger of sliding off a cliff in Washington State.

Homeowner Brett Holmes said he woke up in his home on Whidbey Island, north of Seattle, around 4 a.m. yesterday to what sounded like a thunderstorm.

He looked out his window, and 20 huge trees were gone. 

One house slid right into the ocean, but everyone got out safely.

The neighborhood sits on a fault line and there's been a lot of rain this year.
