CLINTON — A mudslide has hit eight waterfront homes on Whidbey Island near Clinton.

Sheriff Mark Brown says water that backed up in a blocked culvert broke through a road about 7 a.m. today and carried debris downhill to Puget Sound. He says the water flooded the eight homes and caused some foundation damage.

Brown says residents had been evacuated overnight because of the danger, and no one is injured.

County crews are removing debris and repairing the road.
