Storage Building Damaged by Landslide in Walpole, Mass.

A self-storage building was damaged Monday during a landslide after several days of heavy rains in Walpol, Mass. One building and 75 storage units were damaged at Stor/Gard Self Storage. The rain caused the dirt on a hill next to the facility to erode, causing a huge chunk to slide through a chain-link fence and over a two-story, concrete wall, said Fire Chief Tim Bailey.

No one was hurt. Firefighters and town employees spent several hours reinforcing the hills around the facility to prevent more damage.
