A mudslide in Bellevue prompted the evacuation of four homes Sunday evening and closed a portion of West Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast.
Bellevue Fire Lt. Troy Donlin said no one was injured, but mud reached three homes while a fourth was evacuated out of precaution. He said the mud had covered half of the road, heavily used by commuters, and was spread over about 40 feet in length.
Meanwhile, Bellevue city officials responded to a break in a 6-foot water main on West Lake Sammamish Drive. The water was shut off. A portion of that road also had been closed until further notice.
It was unclear whether the main break caused the mudslide or the mudslide caused the main break.
