Heavy rain triggered a landslide Tuesday that sent mud and trees roaring down onto Interstate 29 in Sioux City. A record amount of two-inches of rain fell during the day, prompting the landslide about 2 P.M., blocking railroad tracks and the northbound lanes of I-29.
No vehicles were on that section of road at the time of the landslide and no injuries are reported. Crews had one lane of the highway back open within an hour but crews had to work though the night to clear the mud from the rest of the road and the railroad beds. More rain is in the forecast, prompting fears of more landslides.
