Rock slide in Rocher last weekend

Sunday morning, Dec. 1 started off like most mornings for Kerry and Rhonda Hooten of Prairie du Rocher, at least until they looked out their window. They were shocked to see that a large chunk of the bluffs by their house had fallen over the course of the evening/morning and was now in their driveway.

Rhonda reported that they did not hear or feel anything, so they are not sure when the massive mound of rock fell. They just knew it was suddenly there on Sunday morning. And it fell very close to their home and garage.
