According to The Seattle Times, a portion of West Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast will remain closed until further notice while crews work to clean the mudslide.  No one was injured, but mud reached three homes while a fourth was evacuated out of precaution.

Bellevue city officials responded to a break in a water main on West Lake Sammamish Drive but it was unclear whether the main break caused the mudslide or the mudslide caused the main break.
