WOODLAND HILLS (CBS) — Flowing mud and debris prompted about 30 people to evacuate their homes in Woodland hills Sunday after a day of heavy rains and high winds, police and city fire officials said.

Twelves homes had to be evacuated near 4855 N. Regalo Road, where debris and mud were approaching a retaining wall, said Diana Igawa of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Those displaced were taken to a fire station for shelter, Igawa said. No one injuries were reported.

Nearby on Buenaventura Street, a tree and transformer went down, according to the Los Angeles Police Department Topanga station.

Police also reported a mudslide in the 5100 block of Baza Avenue.

Thousands of weather-related outages in the Southern California area had been reported throughout the day, with most of the valley area being in the dark, according to LADWP officials.
