Heavy rain in the Lake Hughes area has caused mudslides like the one in this picture submitted by NBC4 viewer Jeff Zimmerman, Zimmerman Media LLC. At least two road closures are in effect in the area - one for Lake Elizabeth Road and one for Bouquet Canyon Road. More than a dozen home were evacuated and numerous roads were closed as flooding and mudslides brought on by a strong winter storm threatened Lake Hughes. At least 13 homes south of Lake Hughes and Deeswood roads in Lake Hughes were under mandatory evacuations Friday night, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Palmdale Station.
