By Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A mudslide toppled one home in Utah on Tuesday and forced the evacuation of 20 others and a tennis club below a hillside that city officials said had already shown signs of stress.  The mudslide appears to be 200- to 300-feet wide and roughly the same length, said Len Arave, mayor of North Salt Lake, a community about eight miles north of Salt Lake City. Rocks and dirt from the slope began moving early on Tuesday, the mayor told Reuters, crashing through one house and damaging a retaining wall and the Eagle Ridge Tennis and Swim Club next door.  The mudslide started about 12 hours after a heavy summer storm dumped almost an inch of rain on the area in one hour, said Mike Conger, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
