Mudslide causes trouble getting kids home in Summers County

Posted: Updated:

There were some difficulties in Summers County on Wednesday, May 8 as students were dismissed from school.

59News has learned that the recent rains lead to mudslide near Summers County High School.  The mud blocked traffic and covered train tracks located near the school.  That prevented a train from moving forward and blocked the exit for school buses trying to leave the school.  That was at around 3 p.m. Dispatchers said the mess was cleaned up around 45 minutes later.
