‘Til The Landslide Brought It Down

SHARE

WHOA.

A massive landslide has buried a quarter-mile of the PCH in scenic Big Sur — near Mud (pun NOT intended) Creek.

Smaller landslides had been occurring in the area since January, but this is some next level shit.

On Saturday, over 1 million tons of rock and dirt slid onto the Pacific Coast Highway, creating a 35-40 feet deep layer of dirt for about 1,500 feet.

A result of one the wettest winters on record in California, this scenic section of State Route 1 could stay closed for a year. 

Thankfully, no one was hurt.
