State Route 160 closes after flash flood

Nevada State Route 160 southbound is closed near mile marker 11 after flash floods caused mudslides Friday night.

There was up to three feet of mud and debris after the flash flood, causing a few cars to get stuck, according to Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Jeremie Elliott. Originally, both directions of the road were closed.

State Route 160 southbound is expected to reopen Sunday. There were no serious injuries.
