With the Rain Comes Land Slides
December 5, 2012, 2:36 pm
The soil is saturated from all our rain and the terrain, mostly loose rocks and mud, are crumbling down on several roads and highways.
A land slide on Highway 30 near the St. Johns Bridge partially closed the road. A tree fell and sent 50 to 100 cubic yards of dirt crumbling onto the highway.
A debris slide on River Road South sent about 20 truck loads of rock and mud onto the roadway.
Highway 101 was closed north of Florence while crews cleared a downed tree.
A huge boulder rolled onto the Florence-Eugene Highway.
Highway 20 was also damaged following a land slide on the shoulder near the Yaquina River.
