      Heavy thunderstorms triggered mudslides and debris flows along Hwy 38 afternoon of 7/31/22.

      Unknown duration, but So Fork, San B, Forsee no access til open. San G and Bernardinos in general not good idea til monsoon lets up and crews get roads clear.

      Watch local news on tv or web for latest.

      Thanks HG!

      You may have saved many from a long drive up there only to be turned around.

      You can find CA highway status going to this site (official CalTrans): just type in the number of the highway.  They keep the site quite updated too.

      roads.dot.ca.gov

      I just checked now and this is what I found:

      This highway information is the latest reported as of Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022 at 05:37 PM.

      SR 38

      IS CLOSED FROM 6.8 MI EAST OF REDLANDS TO 9 MI EAST OF ANGELUS OAKS (SAN BERNARDINO CO) – DUE TO A MUDSLIDE – MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE

      Darn those Monsoonies lol!  But yay for the critters that hopefully their water sources will get recharged!

      Ya.  The water is welcome for sure.

      Here’s a twitter page I found with pictures.  Those guys and girls work fast at cleaning these things up!

      Fully agreed with you, Mike!  Huge thanks to the first responders, the construction people, engineers, swift water rescue, everyone doing what they can to get the highway clear!  With days upon days of monsoon weather still forecast, hopefully it will just give the Bernardinos a glancing blow!

      Good news for those who love the desert – lots of rain on radar over the Mojave including the Santa Rosa Mtns in the Borrego and Palm Springs areas too!  Hope for the flowers!
