Earthquake sends huge boulders tumbling onto California road

An earthquake sent huge boulders tumbling onto a road near the border between the US states of California and Nevada last month. Footage captured on July 8 near Coleville by Brett Durrant showed a large amount of dust rising from the ground as the quake hit. A few moments later, Durrant and his travel companions found the enormous rocks blocking the U395. "We were driving up to Lake Tahoe from LA and at 3:50 pm, we started seeing dust everywhere," Durrant said. "At first, we thought it was caused by dirt bikes but eventually, we figured it was an earthquake," he added. "Within a few hundred yards, the road was completely blocked by boulders, so we had to get out and move those to drive forward," he said.
