Six frightened families fled their Santa Clarita houses Friday to escape a waterlogged hillside that cracked and was slowly slipping down on them. By late Friday, the hill above the 19000 block of Maplebay Court had not collapsed, but authorities feared weekend rains would send a wall of mud crashing into the homes. "All the property up above is just cracking like crazy," said Marian Mohler, an insurance supervisor who was ordered to evacuate her house by 7 p.m.

An inadvertent mixture of hydrochloric acid and jet fuel at a rail yard led to the temporary evacuation of about 1,000 residents of this Mojave Desert town. Hazardous-materials teams, including one from a nearby Marine base, were sent to the Union Pacific rail yard after the fumes were reported about 6 p.m. Thursday. Fourteen emergency fire crews also responded to the scene.

As a wildfire sparked evacuations in Southern California on Wednesday morning, victims of a blaze that destroyed 1,600 homes in San Diego County a year ago complained that they were still battling insurance companies to get more money to rebuild. At issue: underinsurance of homes and who is to blame.

The third day of an intense series of winter storms brought widespread flooding, huge waves and more evacuations throughout Southern California, with another powerful front expected to hit this morning. Wednesday's storm lacked the dramatic tornado conditions of Tuesday's, but it dropped significantly more rain. Streets from San Pedro to Sunland flooded. And the afternoon commute turned into a nightmare when portions of the 405 and 710 freeways were inundated by several feet of water, stranding several cars.
