Late Night Rockfall Rattles Curry Village

In Events, News, Safety

“A small rockfall occurred at 2:53 am on Saturday, June 9 behind Curry Village. The release point for the rockfall was ~550 meters (1800 feet) above the Valley floor, at the top of Staircase Falls. A rock about 20 cubic meters in size (60 tons) fell down the path of Staircase Falls, sweeping additional debris down with it. Seventeen tent and hard-sided cabins in Curry Village are closed as a precautionary measure pending assessment.” ~NPS

I’ll post any further info as I get it. If anyone has pictures please email them to me. Thanks.
