* Officials from the California Department of Transportation now have no timetable set for clearing a massive slide on U.S. Highway 101 south of Garberville near Leggett. Crews were working on Sunday’s original slide, but Wednesday night, another slide — perhaps even bigger than the first one — buried both lanes under hundreds of tons of rock, soil and trees. With the slide still active, work crews have to be very careful clearing debris. Check the Caltrans Facebook page for more information.
