A portion of the beautiful coastal Highway 1 is now buried under 40 feet of mud and rock after a landslide took place during the weekend, according to SF Gate.
The area affected contains over 1 million tons of rock and mud, and is along a stretch of highway in an area called Mud Creek, miles south of Monterey.
The mudslide is referred to by geologists as the largest in California’s history, and is likely the product of one of the state’s wettest years.
It is estimated that fixing the natural disaster will cost more than $1 billion, and there isn’t an expected date for the highway to open yet.
