THE EMOTIONS singer Wanda Vaughn fled her Glendale, California, home yesterday (08FEB05) when a torrent of mud flooded her house.

The BEST OF MY LOVE hitmaker was relaxing when sludge poured into her kitchen and lounge, following a mudslide in the area.

Vaughn grabbed her music awards, including her Grammy, before abandoning the building. However, her daughter WHITNEY injured her knee after getting trapped in 20 to 40 centimetres (eight to 16 inches) of mud.

Vaughn says, "It's like one of those Jurassic Park things, you know, but it was just mud, and it kept getting higher."
