A Massive Chunk Of California's Highway 1 Fell Into The Ocean [VIDEO]


If you're driving along the California coast, you might want to avoid Highway 1 - for a long, long time.

A massive chunk of the iconic mountainside highway collapsed and sank into the ocean last week, leaving a 150-foot gap behind. Officials blame a 'debris flow' caused by heavy rains and mudslides.

Fortunately, no one was on the road at the time - officials closed the highway last Tuesday after noticing potential structural damage.

Crews can't even start work on repairs just yet - the area is still 'active' and subject to more landslides. The cost of repairs will be greater than $5 million.
