East Liverpool mudslide risk

All of the rain and snowmelt means mudslides can become a problem.

East Liverpool has had damaging mudslides before. Recently, on route 11 and another time on Dresden Avenue.

A crumbling hillside also damaged homes on Lisbon Street.

Mayor Ryan Stovall says the city is keeping a close eye on hillsides and neighborhoods.

“Knock on wood, I’m not going to jinx myself. Everything is stable right now and hopefully it stays that way,” Stovall said.

Mudslides from previous storms have been cleaned up and stabilized.
