The storm before the flood - SR 14 slide recovery

Crews are still working to clean up the mess left behind by mudslides that closed SR 14 on July 14. Here's a look at the storm that started it all!

 

The hard-hitting thunderstorm dumped several inches of rain on a three-mile stretch of SR 14, just east of Roosevelt. Crews reopened the highway on July 16, but are still working to clear debris and repair guardrail.
