It was the fourth slide at the falls in 36 years. The Big Picture At Niagara This photograph, taken after a big slide occurred at Prospect Poinf. in 1954, pinpoints (arrow) the area of yesterday's rockslide. Canopy of the souvenir shop (bottom left) was destroyed yesterday. (AP Wirephoto) ' New Slides Threaten Famed Falls N I A G A R A FALLS, N.Y., (UPI)--Police warned today that there was a possibility of additional rock slides at Niagara Falls if above-average rainfall continued. The rain was blamed for a slide Thursday that sent an estimated 100 tons of rock plummeting down the Niagara River Gorge just below the American Falls. No one was injured. The Weather Bureau at Buffalo reported Thursday's rain brought the area's total for the first 11 days of yiay'to 2,97 inches. .. · The average rainfall for the entire month is 2.95 inches. The .rock slide occurred between Prospect Point at the American Falls and an observation tower a short distance downstream near the Rainbov Bridge connecting New Yorl and Ontario. The cascading rubble damaged the roof of a souvenir shop at the base of the observation tower but two women employes fled before the slide. The slide began,.shortly before noon and ended' early in the afternoon. It was the largest rockslide' at the resort area since 185,000 tons of rock crashed to the base of the gorge at Prospect Point in July 1954.

(See sports section for sports calendar.). Niagara Frontier State Park police reported a small area near the site of the slide remained roped off to the public. A large portion of the remaining rock wall may have to be scaled off before the summer influx of tourists because of a crack in the rock which threatens to send tons more down the slope, authorities said. A more massive, but less significant, fall occurred in April, 1963, when about 1,000 tons of mud,rock and trees fell from Goat Island, which separates Canada's Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls, and tumbled into the gorge. Rockslides at Niagara Falls have concerned both U.S. and C a n a d i a n governments f o r much of the last century. Engineers have warned since pre-Depression days that the falls could one day become little more than a series of. cascading waterfalls.
