Original Feb. 6 post:
A mudslide this morning has cut off Greenwater from the rest of the Plateau.
The Washington State Department of Transportation reported at 7:22 a.m. on Feb. 6 that state Route 410 is closed just east of Mud Mountain Road (milepost 29) to just east of Greenwater (milepost 49).
This has resulted in some Enumclaw School District students needing to stay home instead of heading to school.
Additionally, The United States Postal Service has announced that mail delivery to more than 400 Enumclaw residents will be delayed.
Local access is possible, according to Greenwater Fire Chief Paul Sowers in a Facebook post, but “if you do not need to travel, don’t,” he wrote. “If you must, exercise extreme caution.”
This is an ongoing story, and will be updated as information comes in.
