Mud Slide Closes I-80 Near Cal/ Nev Border

Pouring rain at higher elevations caused a mud slide near the California Nevada Border closing Interstate 80 for several hours as crews removed the watery mess the size of a football field from the roadway. Rochelle Jenkins with Cal-Trans says a mud slide following torrential rain is not unusual.
