Two mudslides shut down part of Highway 15 in Knott County for over an hour.

Mud and rock covered the road making it impassable.

Crews are working to clean up the mudslide as quickly as possible.

Officials are worried about the stability of the mountain near the mudslide, but say they will ensure it is safe before they let cars go through.
