Creek Flows Over Washed-Out Road in California's Santa Cruz County

Flooding washed out portions of a roadway in Soquel, California, on Friday, March 10, Santa Cruz County officials said.

The section of North Main Street where it meets with Bates Creek was washed out when the creek rose after an atmospheric river storm hit California on Thursday night. Soquel residents north of the creek were warned to shelter in place and were unable to pass as crews worked to find a solution, the county said.
