WHITE PASS, Wash. (AP) - Washington state Transportation Department officials say a large mud and rock slide has shut down more than 30 miles of U.S. Highway 12 between White Pass and the intersection with State Highway 410.

Mud and tree debris reportedly blocked both lanes Wednesday afternoon along a swath of highway 40 yards long.

No injuries have been reported.

Highway officials say a detour is available via Highway 410.
