The heavy rains that deluged much of North Central Washington in the past few days caused havoc with several Forest Service roads.

Debris flows have covered three different places on Twisp River Road about 16 miles west of Twisp.

The slides are near the Slate Creek Trailhead.

Barricades are in place at both ends of the debris flows.

Removing the materials will require heavy equipment. And that isn’t expected to arrive until next week.

There also is a small slide on Hart’s Pass Road.

Crews were able to clear much of it but with the slide still active the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest recommends not using the road.

Work on removing the debris is expected to be completed later this week.
