Mudslide Closes Yellowstone's East Entrance
Yellowstone National Park – Sixteen people had to be
rescued last night (Sunday) after mudslides bogged down three
vehicles and stranded a fourth near the east entrance of
Yellowstone National Park.
The east entrance is closed and it doesn't look like it will be
reopened any time soon. The two largest slides were ten feet deep
and 90 yards long.
Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash says thousands of cubic feet of
debris will have to be removed. Besides that, the slides undercut
part of the roadway and washed away guardrails.
