TILLAMOOK, OR (KPTV) -

Major flooding has caused some serious problems on the Oregon Coast.

Much of the town of Tillamook was left underwater, and now some families have something else to worry about.

A large cracked road right next to several homes has some people really living on the edge.

Morgan Kottre said she first noticed the crack on Monday. At that time it was just a small crack but then more big storms hit.

Little by little the crack grew, inching closer to those homes.

Kottre said her main concern now is trying to get it to stop.

"Our primary concern is stabilizing the ground, making sure its not going to keep moving. If we could just get it to sit, we can work with what we've got. It's just a matter of making sure its not gonna keep falling down."

Kottre said if it gets bad enough, she along with her neighbors will be forced to move.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for the repairs.

Stabilizing the area is expected to cost nearly $150,000.
