ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque family was up all night trying to clean up a mudslide that made its way into their home.
Mud slid down a mound, breaking a cinderblock retaining wall and packing the Trujillo family’s backyard with about four feet of mud.
Around 11 p.m. Saturday, water started seeping into the family's home from the back door.
They run a home daycare and playground equipment has been drenched in mud. Inside the home, the carpet is ruined as well as furniture.
City workers were at the residence earlier Sunday clearing out the street, but it's the homeowners and people helping them who started sandbagging, clearing water out and digging a trench in case another heavy rainfall happens again.
“We didn't know what to do so we just started taking the water and just dumping it out and my wife and I did it for about an hour and a half an then called the neighbor. He came over and helped us,” said Charles Trujillo, who has lived in the home with his family for 24 years.
Since the early morning hours, dozens of friends, family and neighbors helped lend a hand and no one has gotten sleep yet.
