A mudslide closed Highway 38 between Red River and Questa Saturday afternoon (July 20), according to local emergency services personnel.

The incident was reported shortly after 3 p.m. near mile marker 11.

Emergency dispatchers in Red River said crews from the New Mexico Department of Transportation were attending to the scene but that the road could remain closed until 5 or 6 p.m.

Storms across Northern New Mexico have prompted road closures in recent weeks as washouts from rain render some routes impassible.

Additional rain was forecast for the area Saturday evening.
