Families told to move out of Tar Creek area

16 families living in the Tar Creek Superfund site have 30-days to get out of their homes.

The Picher Housing Authority is closing down 24 units of a housing complex because they're at risk of caving in. We're told the families will be relocated, but we don't know where.

The area is one of 286 areas at risk of falling into shafts created by decades of lead and zinc mining.
