Home / National News / Southern California Recovers from Mud Mess Left by Storms


(LOS ANGELES) — Cleanup is under way this weekend from the major mudslides due to flash flooding and thunderstorms in a section of Southern California that trapped hundreds of cars on a highway.

However, more showers are in the forecast, which could hamper relief efforts in Los Angeles County’s Antelope Valley, although the worst of the storms appeared to be over.

Vehicles were stuck on State Route 58, about 30 miles east of Bakersfield, on Friday, California Highway Patrol officials said.

Search and rescues were ongoing Friday, where the mud has been estimated to be up to 6 feet deep in spots. No deaths or injuries were reported.

Several homes were damaged by the flash flooding and debris from the storms.
