Colorado Mudslides Triggered by Heavy Rains Force Closure of I-70

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Colorado Mudslides Triggered by Heavy Rains Force Closure of I-70” – below is their description.

Flooding caused by monsoonal rains on July 31 forced Interstate 70 at Glenwood Canyon, Colorado, to remain closed to motorists.

Drone footage filmed by the Colorado Department of Transportation on Sunday, August 1, shows the extent of the mudslide damage to the canyon and its surrounding areas.

According to local reports multiple mudslides have been triggered in recent weeks due to heavy rain over an area burned by a wildfire in western Colorado.

On the night of July 29 dozens of motorists were reportedly trapped overnight on the highway due to mudslides.

The Interstate 70, Colorado’s main east-west highway, remained closed near Glenwood Canyon on Monday, according to officials.
