2005 landslide

Bluebird Canyon was a surreal scene of destruction after the landslide, which not only destroyed a dozen homes but damaged eight others in a pandemonium of exploding fire hydrants, ripping power lines, splintering floors and fleeing people. Remarkably, no one died or was seriously injured. Mark Boster / Los Angeles Times
