Heavy rains cause a mudslide in Delaware County.

Closing a road in the Town of Hancock

Part of Peas Eddy Road was closed for much of the afternoon and into this evening.

The road was reportedly covered in 5 to 6 feet of mud

And was deemed unsafe for passing traffic.

It happened on this hill, where police say a natural gas pipeline was recently installed.

Haystacks were lined on the hill to stop a possible mud slide.

But were no match for today's weather.

Precision Pipeline was taking care of the cleanup.
