WSDOT Closes Roads After Mudslides

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:  Firefighters are still cleaning up a large landslide just North of Naches.  State Route 410 is closed at mile marker 107.

Firefighters said the ground is still moving in the area, and it is a very dangerous situation.  They do not know how many people might be trapped between different sections of the landslide, if any.

Firefighters, police and plows were at the scene to close the section of State Route 410, and to start moving mud and debris off the road to clear it and get to anyone who might be stuck.

We will keep you updated on this story as we learn more.
