BEN LOMOND (KCBS) – The site of a deadly mudslide 35 years ago in the Santa Cruz Mountains has been wiped out again.

The saturated mountainside gave way near Ben Lomond on Monday. Love Creek Falls was destroyed.

In January 1982, a quarter-mile swath of the hillside gave way.

Particularly hard hit was the Love Creek area near Ben Lomond. Ten residents would die in a massive slide including the McCluskey family. The bodies of the parents – John and Lynda – were recovered, but the remains of their little boys — Trevor and Kelly — were never found.

No reports of deaths or injuries were reported in Monday’s mudslide.
