There was a police presence outside homes and businesses on Ely Avenue in Norwalk Friday afternoon. The street was closed due to the activity.
Norwalk police say a retaining wall collapsed due to heavy rainfall, forcing homes to be evacuated.
Police said two large dump trucks were removed by police, fire, animal control and the Building Department.
Police went door to door to residents living at the bottom of the embankment, who then packed up to evacuate.
Most police and fire officials have since left the scene, but Ely Avenue is still closed on one side.
