Landslide moves entire home several feet off its foundation

It happened this Monday in Hoquiam, Washington: A landslide caused by the heavy rain now affecting the region—which "has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for much of Western Washington"—knocked an entire house off its foundation, moving it several feet towards the street.

kind of shows why i love living in Europe mostly all our houses are brick or cement based, we don't have wooden structures for foundation, exterior walls etc, while wood is an amazing material if you want a proper home build a concrete one, i mean even if we had stuff like landslides and tornadoes these houses would stand after any of those things passed by, concrete foundation is the answer
