A mud slide has occurred this morning around 7:30am on US 74 in Jackson Co. Currently crews are assessing the situation, and clean up should begin shortly. It is undetermined how long exactly the cleanup will take, but the west bound lanes could be closed for a couple of days. Below are photos sent in by AshevilleWX viewer Amber Hannah.
It appears that Skyland Dr. can be taken to and from Sylva, by way of Dark Ridge Rd., but I will need some to verify that for me. Please be patient and allow crews time to properly secure the slope before traffic resumes.
