Mudslides close freeway ramps in Sylmar area

SYLMAR, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Last week's rain and snow luckily didn't cause any major damage around the Southland, but it did cause scattered problems throughout the region.

In Sylmar, a mudslide forced the closure of the Balboa Boulevard off-ramp to the southbound 14 Freeway.

The Balboa Boulevard off-ramp to the 5 Freeway was also affected. The ground was saturated by all the rainwater, leaving a muddy mess on the road.

The closures were brief. CHP reopened the off-ramps in just a couple of hours.
