A Series Of Rock Slides Has Closed A Main Highway In Central California
Bakersfield, California (CNN) - The California highway patrol has closed a portion of a highway in Bakersfield after a series of dangerous rock-slides.
Officials say rocks began falling through the Kern River canyon late Monday afternoon during heavy rain.
Some large boulders and mud blocked several vehicles for hours.
Officers said highway 178 would remain closed through at least this morning and possibly for several more days.
Risks of more rock slides prevented state crews from moving in to clear the roadway.
