Massive Landslide Blankets California’s Iconic Coastal Highway

A massive 1 million ton landslide has blanketed part of California’s iconic Highway 1 near Big Sur. This could be due to an unusually wet winter according to state transportation officials. The slide is reportedly one of the state’s biggest.

Although roads remain closed, there is partial coastal access via Naci-Fergusson Rd.

NASA has shared an aerial photo of the current scene on the coastal highway.

According to Associated Press West Region, the landslide is still moving. See the footage below.
