The weather has cause several mudslides in the area. Canyon Road, also known as Highway 821, is expected to be clear be by later today. The slide came after a sudden rain and wind storm that struck Kittitas County on Tuesday evening. No injuries or stranded vehicles were reported in that slide. The mudslide happened in the same area as a massive mudslide which occurred in 1998.

The Tuesday night storm also caused flooding along the Eastbound lanes of I-82. The Ellensburg canyon landslide was the third in four days to close a state highway. Wednesday morning workers were able to reopen state Route 263, where a heavy downpour Sunday night washed mud, rock and debris over the road.
