Over the weekend, heavy rains triggered mudslides near Angeles Oaks in the San Bernardino Mountains, which resulted in the closure of a section of Highway 38.

The mudslides occurred Sunday afternoon along Highway 38, near burn scars left from the 2020 El Dorado fire. As a result, a full closure was put in place between Jenks Lake Road and Valley of the Falls Drive, which is just northeast of Yucaipa.

According to the San Bernardino Sun, witness reports to the California Highway Patrol said around 30 cars were stuck in mudflows near the small community of Angeles Oaks. As of 8:00 a.m Monday, the closure remains in place.
