SF condo evacuated after rains loosen boulders 

San Francisco authorities have evacuated a condominium building at the base of San Francisco's Telegraph Hill after several boulders slid down the hill and crushed a parked car.

The boulders apparently were loosened by the weekend rain. They slid down the hill near Lombard and Montgomery streets on Monday morning. A parked car at the multistory condo complex was destroyed, but there were no injuries.

The building has been temporarily evacuated while engineers determine if any more boulders could fall, according to the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/x41Lff ).

The car that was crushed was owned by a security guard for the complex.

Jon Golinger, head of the Telegraph Hill Dwellers Association, said the boulders were as large as 5 feet across. He said the security guard's car helped protect the building.
