Sunday's heavy rain across the region triggered some flooding and landslides in Oregon. Locally, Highway 20 west of Santiam Pass near Cascadia remains closed after tons of mud, rock, debris and large trees tumbled over the highway. ODOT spokesman Rick Little said the slide looked like about 150 cubic yards of debris covers the highway.  Also, smaller slides and high water on the road east of the slide deemed the road is unsafe fro travel. but, little said they will open a lane for emergency travel only. Eastbound drivers are directed to Highways 22 or 126 and westbound drivers should use Highway 126 and follow the signs.  

 

High water caused a temporary closure of Upper Davis Loop road south of Prineville. Crook County officials worked through the night to divert water from the road.  With more snow melt and rain in the forecast, authorities warn you to avoid or use extreme caution when driving through standing water.
