EAST BANK, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Heavy rains caused a mudslide and road closure Saturday night in East Bank.
The slide happened around 7:30 Saturday evening. It blocked both lanes of traffic on MacCorkle Avenue near Crown Hill and pulled down power lines.
Emergency crews say the weather has been too much for the hill to handle.
"I think with all the rain and snow we've had, the hill just couldn't take all the moisture. nature taking it's toll," said Curtis Kirk with the East Bank Fire Department.
The road has since re-opened.
