Highway 1 Landslide Adds To List Of Storm Damaged CA Highways

State officials are saying highway damage from storms has topped $1 billion for the first time in California history. Last year's damages totaled $660 million.  This year's initial estimate does not include a massive weekend landslide that wiped out part of Highway 1 in Big Sur.

The slide happened Saturday.  It covers almost 15-hundred feet of the highway and extends into the ocean.  It is estimated that well over one-million tons of rock and dirt crashed down the mountain.
