Return at your own risk. That's the message from Prince George's County to residents choosing to ignore a mandatory evacuation in Fort Washington because of a slow motion landslide known as a slope failure.
Things got a little tense Thursday night as people with homes on and near the site of the Piscataway Drive slope failure met with Prince George's County officials to find out when they can go home.
The heavy rain, mixed with Marlboro clay is what a new report says is to blame for triggering a slow moving landslide in Fort Washington.
"The rain certainly should be a concern," says Maryland state geologist Richard Ortt. "Prince George's County is going to be monitoring the situation very tightly."
Prince George's County officials say they have no idea at this point when evacuated residents will be allowed back into their homes.
