Flash flooding along State Route 89 Wednesday forced the closure of the roads around the Lake Tahoe area that remain close. The rain brought heavy debris and mud flow near the town of Markleeville, which runs through the Tamarack Fire burn scar. No estimated time of reopening has been announced as of Thursday morning. The California Highway Patrol is reporting that one car was nearly washed away along the roadway. It is being advised to continue avoiding the area in case of more mudslides and damage to the roadway.
