Roads closed in Death Valley National Park after flash flood

DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, Calif. — Some roads in and out of Death Valley National Park have been closed after being inundated with mud and debris over the weekend from flash floods that also hit western Nevada and northern Arizona hard.

Officials on Sunday gave no estimate of when roads around Death Valley would reopen.

Motorists have also been urged to avoid Southern California’s Mojave National Preserve after flooding bent sidewalks on some roads. The rain also prompted the closure of highways and campgrounds elsewhere, but no injuries were reported.

The storms caused torrential downpours and the National Weather Service reported that more than an inch of rain fell in 15 minutes Sunday near Kingman, Arizona, which is near the state line with California.

In a mountainous area east of Los Angeles on the edge of the San Bernardino National Forest, mudslides have thrown trees and large rocks onto roads and blocked them near the town of Yucaipa.

Meteorologists said more thunderstorms were possible on Monday.
