️ A huge landslide buried a primary road with trees and debris near Seward, Alaska, cutting off access for scores of people.
Efforts are underway to clear a road where dozens of fully grown evergreen trees as well as rocks and dirt toppled into an Alaska bay, covering the roadway and cutting off road access for scores of people. City Manager Janette Bower says there were no injuries in the Saturday evening landslide. She estimates that the slide measured 61 meters long by 91 meters wide and could take up to two weeks to clear. The slide has prevented about 200 residents and tourists from reaching Seward by road. Bower says the community has stepped up with water taxis and landing crafts to get people back and forth around the slide. (AP)
