Flooding, slides close Highway 20 late Friday

LAKE COUNTY – Highway 20 was closed shortly before 10:30 p.m. Friday as a result of the day's heavy rains.


The California Highway Patrol and Caltrans reported that Highway 20 was closed in both directions from its junction with Highway 53 to Interstate 5 in Williams due to flooding over the roadway and rock slides.


Flooding in the road was reported at early as 5:30 p.m., but it wasn't until nearly five hours later that officials finally closed the roadway, according to the CHP incident logs.


Farther up along the highway, at Hillside Lane at Clearlake Oaks, CHP reported that rocks were falling into the roadway.


CHP's Ukiah Dispatch Center said it was unknown when the highway would reopen.
