Nov. 21—A large landslide south of Wrangell in Southeast Alaska late Monday closed the Zimovia Highway at 11 Mile and drew a multi-agency emergency response, including the local search and rescue team, the city said in a Facebook post.
It was not immediately known whether people in homes or vehicles were caught in the slide.
"A large-scale search and rescue effort cannot be done at this time as the site is extremely hazardous and unstable," officials said in the 3:45 a.m. post.
KSTK public radio in Wrangell reported the slide occurred about 9 p.m. and knocked out power to some areas.
