MUDSLIDE ON MT. INDEX RIVER ROAD
January 10, 2009
(INDEX, WA) -- A mudslide, carrying with it snow, trees, rocks and other debris slid onto the Mt. Index River Road and out into the Skykomish River about 9:00 a.m. this morning.
No injuries or damage was reported but the slide made it impossible for a number of people living in the Index area to reach Highway 2 via car or truck over the normal route. Foot travel to the highway was still possible over the slide. County officials have closed the road pending an inspection of the slide area.
