    At Least 20 La Jolla Homes Threatened By Sinkhole

    http://www.10news.com/news/14260985/detail.html

    LA JOLLA, Calif. -- More than 20 homes have been threatened along a La Jolla hillside Wednesday as a 50-yard-wide, cone-shaped sinkhole swallowed part of a street leading into the ritzy area.

    There were no immediate reports of injuries following the slide, which started around 9 a.m., a San Diego Fire-Rescue dispatcher said.

    The sinkhole is in the middle of Soledad Mountain Road and is about 12 feet deep, Maurice Luque of the San Diego Fire Department said.

    Love Mama, I know you're in that area - and I'm sure there are others - I hope everyone and their homes are OK.
    You put the light in me...

    Hoping all of our WSer's in the area are good.

    It's funny, but that's the first thing I think of now when I hear of this type of thing and I know we have members there!

    I live about 20 miles north of La Jolla. Sinkholes have begun to be a huge problem all over the San Diego area.
