SF residents can return home to Telegraph Hill 

Residents who were evacuated from their homes after boulders slid down San Francisco's Telegraph Hill can now return to their condominium, but authorities still say they should avoid sleeping there.

Weekend rains apparently loosened the boulders, some of which were as large as 5 feet across. They slid down the hill near Lombard and Montgomery streets on Monday morning and crushed a parked car at the multistory condo complex. There were no injuries.

Engineers who examined the hillside Tuesday say it is still unstable and warn more boulders could fall, according to KGO-TV (http://bit.ly/yraOWc).

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

Department of Public Works officials are still working on a repair plan for the hillside.
