DUARTE (CBSLA.com) — Thick mud, sticks and other debris flowed from a hillside Friday morning in Duarte.

The mud flow engulfed our CBS2 News van around 3:30 a.m., as a storm cell hovered above the area.

Debris sifted over sandbags placed along the residential street while K-rails prevented additional thick mud from pouring into the road.

Authorities are patrolling the neighborhood to ensure the safety of residents.

CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reported the mud flow was a result of the San Gabriel Complex Fire, which charred the hillside in June, leaving the area in a vulnerable state.

KNX 1070’s Jon Baird reported several residents have been asked to shelter in place until further notice.

At this time, no evacuation orders have been issued.

    Really, shelter in place? They just can’t get out of their driveways. When did the world become such babies? No wonder Trump won.
