The homes are located in Lakeport's Lakeside Heights subdivision.

County supervisors will hold an emergency meeting to address the ongoing situation Tuesday morning in Lakeport.

Meanwhile, a request for emergency aid from Gov. Jerry Brown to deal with the still-unexplained cause of the damage is being assessed.

"We need to be sure we've looked at it closely and carefully. We're working as hard as we can," said Kelly Huston, a California Emergency Management agency spokesman.
