Landslide destroys grave sites at Washington cemetery

Posted: Updated:

Families who have buried loved ones at a Washington cemetery are wondering what is going to happen after a landslide destroyed several grave sites at the Ilwaco Cemetery.

Some gravestones have slid down the hillside and even disturbed some caskets that were buried.

One family whose loved one is buried there believes the landslide happened sometime on Thursday.

The gates to the cemetery are now locked.

No word from the caretakers if there is a plan to fix the cemetery.
