Mudslides Continue To Destroy Homes, Disrupt Traffic
A Tornado Watch was issued at about 11:20 a.m. for southwestern
California until 6 p.m. A Tornado Watch means that conditions are
favorable for tornadic activity.
Dozens of homes have been declared unsafe because of the threat from
sliding hillsides. In Highland Park, four more homes were redtagged
after midnight on Tuesday. (Yellow tagging means a home can be accessed
only during daytime hour while red-tagging bars access altogether.)
NBC4's Robert Kovacik reported from the scene of the homes at threat,
where he said neighbors pounded on the doors of other neighbors to warn
them of a mudslide.
