MAPLE VALLEY – One home was damaged in a mudslide in Maple Valley on Thursday afternoon.

Several other homes on 249 Ave. SE were evacuated about 1:30 p.m. due to slide risk.

"I just heard a loud boom," said neighbor Patty Pouliot. "Then firefighters showed up at my house and told us to pack a bag and get our animals out as quick as we could, so here we are."

Neighbors were told it could be several hours before they can return to their homes. Department of Natural Resources geologists are assessing the area and determining if the hillside is stable.

They say one damaged home was knocked off its foundation by a few feet.

No injuries were reported. Firefighters said no one was inside the house that got damaged when the landslide took place.

The homeowner told KING 5 their dog was initially missing after the slide. The dog was found a few hours later, hiding in a crawl space. The homeowner said the dog was shaken up, but otherwise okay.

Evacuated neighbors were allowed to return to their homes at about 6 p.m. Thursday. The home that was damaged was red-tagged.

According to geologists with the Department of Natural Resources, the slide started about 15 feet beneath the ridge top. It's believed recent snow and rain saturated the ground and likely caused the slide.

DNR says there is an increased landslide risk right now across much of Western Washington, due to the combination of rain and snow seen over the last few days.

Heavy rain across the region Thursday caused localized urban flooding and small-scale mudslides.

A flood watch continued for most of western Washington through Friday evening when the rain is expected to wrap up.
