The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday updated the public on monitoring the Memorial Day weekend mudslide that is presumed to have killed three men.

Cameras and weather-monitoring equipment have been installed at the site, and scientists are working to evaluate the stability of the slide.

The missing men were Clancy Nichols, 51, who also worked as a county road and bridge employee; his son Danny Nichols, 24; and Wes Hawkins, 46, who worked for the local water district.

Here are videos taken Memorial Day weekend from a helicopter survey of the slide.
