Four homes were deemed unsafe to enter Monday after a landslide in a neighborhood north of Los Angeles.

The homes on Plume Way in the Skyline development in Canyon Country were yellow-tagged by building inspectors, indicating they are uninhabitable, due to the landslide on a hillside below the houses. The landslide damaged a road and sidewalk in the new housing development.

The landslide was reported Sunday.

It was not immediately clear when residents will be allowed back in the homes.

There were no reports of injuries.

In a statement, developer Tri Pointe Homes said the soil moved following Southern California’s torrential rainfall from a series of January storms.

“Following California’s series of heavy rains recently, a landslip occurred at the top of a slope along the rear yard fences of several homes in the Lyra neighborhood, on Sunday, February 5, 2023,” the company said. “The safety of homeowners is of the utmost importance. We are working with the impacted homeowners, including covering their costs for intermediary housing, while a remediation plan is being developed to stabilize and rebuild the slope.

“At this time, there does not appear to be issues on other slopes in the Skyline community. We will, however, continue to closely monitor the situation under the guidance of geotechnical experts.

“The steps we have taken reflect our commitment to handling situations of this nature and we will continue to take appropriate steps for addressing an issue of this kind.”
