Video of Highway 101 Landslide in California

Landslide on Highway 101 near Leggett, California

A secondary landslide on Highway 101 north of Legget, California was captured on video at the end of April. The original slide closed the highway and after Caltrans was able to clear it and reopen the highway for several hours, a stuck motorist took this video. What strikes me is how overconfident the (presumably) Caltrans employees are. If you see the slope shedding rocks like that, you better get back in a hurry!

    Looks like the Facebook video gets cropped when I embedded it here. You can go watch it from either of the source links to see the entire thing.
