Large Rock Falling Off Cliff Where Lake Whitney Home Was Burned

Posted: Updated:
 (KCEN) -- Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are working with Hill County officials and homeowners in the White Bluff Estates on Lake Whitney.

They’re trying to figure out the best way to remove a large chunk of limestone rock that separated from the cliff the house was on. Homeowners decided to burn that home earlier this month after it was teetering off the edge of that cliff.

Randy Cephus with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says they’re considering a number of demolition methods to the rock that is slowly tipping over into the lake.

Some of these methods include blowing up the rock with dynamite or wedging inflatable air bags into the fault line, forcing the rock to fall into the lake.

The Corps is hoping to have the rock demolished by 4th of July weekend but there isn’t a set date for the demo.

Currently the area near the rock is off limits to boaters.
