It's one week into an evacuation advisory on the 600-800 block of Patrol Road in Woodside due to a mudslide, according to Town Manager Kevin Bryant.
The warning to evacuate went into effect on Wednesday, March 22, and is still affecting 30 homes in the neighborhood as of March 29.
Town Engineer Sean Rose and Town Geologist Andrew Mead visited Patrol Road and determined that debris could be removed without inducing a further slide, according to Town Manager Kevin Bryant. The debris has since been removed, he said in an email.
"The evacuation advisory for the 600-800 block of Patrol Road will remain in effect as the ground remains saturated and additional land movement could occur," he said. "The town will continue to monitor and assess the area over the next couple of days."
On March 22 around 8 a.m., the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office told residents on the block on Twitter:
"If you live in this area, please pack your 'Go Bag,' with necessary essentials: insurance policy, pets, medications, a change of clothes, and LEAVE NOW."
On March 23, the Sheriff's Office alerted people on Twitter that Woodside Road is closed to through traffic from Tripp Road to Portola Road because of a developing sink hole. There's no estimated time of reopening.
Wunderlich County Park, which is nearby the street closure, closed while "staff assess damage from heavy rainfall and high winds and determine when parks can safely open," according San Mateo County Parks.
