Titanic movie star Leonardo DiCaprio has been sued by his neighbors for allegedly activating a landslide on the neighbor’s property through negligently excavating for a basketball court at his home in the hills above Sunset Boulevard. So far some plants and hedges have been damaged and their deck and pool is "in danger of collapse". The neighbor is seeking $250,000 in compensation. A DiCaprio spokesman, Ken Sunshine, said the lawsuit "is totally without merit." Source: AP by way of LA Daily News.
A landslide occured about 9am PT yesterday in a residential neighborhood of La Jolla, just north of San Diego. No injuries have been reported, but estimates are that 2,500 people are without either power or gas because of toppled power lines and ruptured gas lines. The Soledad Mountain Road is currently impassable. I’ll update this post as more information becomes available. In the mean time, check out some video and a location map after the break.
