Third Landslide In a Month Isolates 50 Mile Stretch of Big Sur Coastline

BIG SUR, Calif.—Heavy rain triggered another mudslide on California’s Pacific Coast Highway, cutting off road access to a roughly 50-mile stretch of the scenic Big Sur coastline, authorities said Monday.

The third mudslide to strike the Monterey County coast in less than two weeks occurred Sunday afternoon near Alder Creek, about 38 miles south of the rustic town of Big Sur, said Jim Shivers, a spokesman for the California Department of Transportation.
