A Washington State man said he could hear a rain-soaked hillside moving, so he grabbed his phone to start filming.
He was recording when the hill gave way and slammed into a passing freight train.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas says freight traffic restarted late Tuesday afternoon after crews worked through the night to rerail one of the derailed freight cars.

 The spokesman says the other six cars derailed in Monday’s mudslide will be removed over the next three weeks. Passenger trains from Seattle to Everett will resume today.

Melonas says another slide hit shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday in the same area.
