In California the landslide hit part of the Pacific motorway
Dirt and stones block the stunning views of the coastal scenic roads in California. Part of the Pacific motorway, considered one of the most picturesque in the United States, was buried a powerful landslide, said the California Department of transportation.

On Saturday, more than a million tons of rocks and mud fell on the slope and in the ocean about 8 miles North of San Luis Obispo. Landslide along the national highway of the state of California extends about a quarter mile and the road is covered with mud with a height of 35-40 feet. The highway passes through the rocky mountains of Big Sur, which are major tourist attraction.

Authorities closed all access to the highway, and they don't know when it will be open. "Millions of tons of dirt covered the roadway with a layer of dirt 35-40 feet. Mother nature tries," - said the representative of the Department of transportation on Twitter. According to officials, no injuries. The highway was closed for some time because the security services worked to remove debris from an earlier landslide.

After officials learned of a possible collapse, they were ordered to suspend the repair and bring heavy equipment. The touristy area was affected by several landslides since January, which caused the temporary closure of the road.
