IDYLLWILD (CNS) – A rock slide triggered by rainfall disrupted travel
on Highway 243 near Idyllwild today, but no injuries or damage was reported.
The slide occurred about 1 p.m. in the northbound lane of the 243,
north of the mountain community, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The agency said the highway remained open, and motorists were
apparently going around the small “boulders.”
It was unclear whether Caltrans crews were en route to clear the rocks.
The area had been under blankets of light to moderate rain since
Tuesday morning as a storm system that’s expected to last until Christmas moved
east over the San Bernardino National Forest.
