Mysterious California landslide: Public warned to stay away from warped road
A road in Santa Clarita, California, turned into an asphalt mess in just three days, and no one knows exactly why. What started off as a small ripple on Vasquez Canyon Road soon turned into a scene from a post-apocalyptic blockbuster: the asphalt torn, utility poles dangerously tilted. Local authorities were quick to close the road on November 19, attracting curious on-lookers as well as extreme sports daredevils. Despite danger warnings, skateboarders have used the opportunity to explore the naturally-made ramp, and one man was seen riding his dirt bike on the newly-formed ripples. Officials with the Los Angeles Department of Public Works even took to Twitter to warn people away from the site as the landslide was still underway.
