Heavy snowfall over the Santiam Pass causes a landslide near Hogg Rock, a place that typically sees some problems in a storm. Highway 20, 20 miles west of Sisters is mostly closed right now while ODOT crews work on the landslide. Peter Murphy with ODOT described what's happening right now. "Well, it looks like the snow came off Hogg Rock, which is kind of typical. It's a very steep rock face and there was a lot of snow built up there. And we had two slides. I’m not sure how big they are right now. But at this time, it looks like we've been able to get one lane open. That doesn't mean any kind of free-flow of traffic, but it does at least suggest that there is some kind of clearing going on right now. There does seem to be one tanker truck that's still stuck up in the snow." Murphy says he does not know how long Highway 20 will be impacted.
