Photos: This Morning's Hollywood Hills Landslide

This morning's small landslide in the Hollywood Hills is a good reminder that it doesn't take an earthquake to make our hillsides move here in Los Angeles. Reporter Guy McCarthy headed up to the scene of the incident on Los Tilos Road in a pocket of residences situated between Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood Bowl.

Writing up the incident on Watershed News, McCarthy noted that "[LAFD Spokesman Brian] Humphrey said it appeared a 1-inch PVC pipe, possibly a private irrigation line, ruptured. But he also raised the possibility the line may have broken as a result of the slide, rather than being the cause of it."

McCarthy shared with us these images he took of the hillside movement and the visible damage to the street and one vehicle.
