Mudslide forces evacuation in Muirlands today

Some residents in La Jolla’s Muirlands had to be evacuated Tuesday morning following a mudslide in their neighborhood, the byproduct of continuing heavy rain.

Gary Hassen, San Diego Police Department spokesman, said a mudslide occurred at 7:56 a.m. at the corner of El Camino Del Teatro and Muirlands Drive.

“There was a 20-foot-wide mudslide in the street and residents were evacuated,” Hassen said.

No other details were available.
