If you live or work in the San Fernando Valley, you may have noticed the earth moving right beneath your feet or wheels. Four intersections succumbed to flooding and "pavement disruptions," late this morning, according to CBS2, who note that all of the issues happened in the 11 o'clock hour.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel were dispatched to Lassen Street at Woodley Avenue in Northridge at 11:17 a.m.; Ethel Avenue at Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks at 11:19 a.m.; Nagle Avenue at Kling Street in Sherman Oaks at 11:42 a.m.; and Vantage Avenue at Saticoy Street in North Hollywood at 11:43 a.m.

It is not known what caused the four "disruptions" or if the incidents were related.
