It was either a sprinkler system or a broken water line on private property in the Whitley Heights Outpost Estates section of the Hollywood Hills that created a small landslide early this morning, according to abc7. Residents on the 7000 block of Los Tilos Road, in a pocket of hilly streets between Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood Bowl, say "they were awoken by a loud noise," with one resident thinking she'd heard a car accident on the street outside. Instead "she saw a mound of soil and vegetation piled up against a red Jeep Grand Cherokee." In fact, the vehicle is the only thing officials say sustained any damage in the incident, although some homes were evacuated as a precaution, and crews are working to clean up the debris.

This section of Los Tilos Road is just one block over from the area on La Presa Drive where one week ago today residents there experienced hillside movement due to the heavy rains.
