A refrigerator-sized boulder crashed through a manufactured home Tuesday, leaving a Klamath County family with a gaping hole in their wall and a giant rock in their living room.
Corey and Jeanine Wells, their adult son and his pregnant fiance were all in the home, located on Highway 97 near the intersection with Modoc Point Road, around 3 p.m. Tuesday when Jeanine looked out the window to see one of their horses bolt.
“He flattened his ears, stuck out his tail and took off,” she said. “That's when I looked up the hill and saw it coming for the house.”
No one was hurt, but the house is likely destroyed, said Corey.
"We're still in shock," he said. "Still spooked."
The Wells have lived at the base of the steep incline on the east side of Highway 97 for over a decade, and they've never had something like this happen, Jeanine said.
"I was watching the hill all night in the dark," she said.
