NORTH SALT LAKE - Residents in North Salt Lake voiced their opinions Tuesday night after the landslide.

City officials listened to their comments, many quite upset after the recent events.

Some residents even accused the city of negligence in the landslide.

Officials said all but four families returned to their homes.

However, those residents must be ready to go at a moment's notice in case the land start to move again.

At least 27 residents were evacuated Tuesday morning.

One home collapsed near the Eagleridge Tennis Club and others are still threatened.

The LDS church on 351 Loft Lane is available as a shelter as needed.

Officials said the area has been unstable for the last few days and residents were warned about the danger.

No injuries have been reported.

The North Salt Lake area has recently experienced two other landslides.

In 2010, a landslide at 940 Lofty Lane was very close to the area where crews are working now.

Then in October 2012, a home in the Springhill neighborhood was demolished because of ongoing landslide concerns.

The city purchased many of the homes in that area to safely tear them down before a landslide claimed them.
