Some residents in the town of Hercules are being told to find another place to live after recent storm damage.

Four homes were yellow-tagged on Monday, and last week, four homes were red-tagged. Officials say a chunk of the neighborhood slipped about 10 feet over the weekend.

Fences came down, windows cracked and there are visible cracks in the hillside. Officials believe a nearby hill is so unstable it could come crashing down at any moment.

The neighborhood is located about 20 miles north of Oakland.
