Resident observes her damaged house after an early morning landslide in Laguna Beach, California.
Robin Kilgore (R) and family friend Jose Vasquez look up at her family's house which was affected by an early morning landslide in Laguna Beach, California, June 1, 2005. The landslide destroyed at least 15 luxury homes in the upscale Southern California seaside community of Laguna Beach on Wednesday, causing panic but no serious injuries, authorities said. Police said 15 to 18 homes were destroyed or seriously damaged and about 20 others were destabilized by the slide, that happened as residents were getting up and preparing to go to work or school. Some escaped in their pajamas. Many of the ocean-view homes, valued at more than $2 million, slid intact down the hillside. Others cracked in half or were left tilting precariously on dirt piles as roads buckled, sidewalks disappeared and utility poles crashed onto cars. REUTERS/Fred Greaves FG
