Are any of those homes for sale? Bet you prices just went down on that street about 50%!

My goodness! Another reason not to buy.

I believe one of the homes that was seriously damaged (possibly a total loss) was for sale for around $1.1M. I am really curious to know if any sliding info was included on the disclosure...

Use the map feature, go to satellite image - then zoom in...

Compare to those on the video and stills

This is the front page story on CNN right now.

Good quote at the end:

" Pat Abbott, a retired geological sciences professor at San Diego State University, told the Union-Tribune that Mount Soledad is made up of weak layers of rock and that the culprit in the landslide is nature.

"Gravity pulling on the incline is pulling down masses of earth and those masses of earth have houses on top of them," Abbott told the paper. "It's a geologically bad site and should not have been built on to begin with."
