Caltrans News Flash 53 Caltrans Responds to Massive Mudslide on Hwy 58
Hi, i'm florene trainor.I'm caltrans district 9 public information officer and we're out here at the state route 58 mudslide that happened on thursday october 14th 2015.I'm standing here with dave batchelder.He is the maintenance manager for this district and he's going to tell us a little bit about what happened out here.Dave, what happened on thursday and what did you see it was just before dark and it was chaos looked like an apocalypse.There was trucks and cars stacked on top of each other, there were.
Cars in the air as high as 10 feet sitting on top of mud.As i looked around there was a lot of people in and out of their vehicles and a lot of a lot of mud.Started making phone calls at approximately 530 and requesting help and the first thing out of the person's mouth was well, do you need a loader and at that point in time i realized you know they really don't understand how big this was.When the sun came up the next day even i was amazed.We had.
Approximately two miles of road that was completely under mud.It ranged anywhere from 2 feet deep to 12 feet deep.Wow, that's absolutely incredible.And just so you know this event and others that we may anticipate this year in el nio conditions the scale of it was much greater than i had imagined until you're actually on the ground you can't get a feel for the scope of what's required in something like this.This was an event that just to give a scale was longer than 30 football fields long and we had.
Mud going 5 to 7 feet in fact mud was coming up to the windows of semi trucks.So this is the single biggest event in district nine for the last fifteen years and includes eastern kern county and all the way up the eastern sierra.So caltrans, this is a caltrans highway and what we do how do we work at getting this cleaned up and getting it back open for the public this is the largest operation that i've ever been on and it's been a joint operation between granite construction and caltrans which is unusual we don't.
Typically work sidebyside with contractors.Their equipment is loading our trucks our equipment is loading their trucks and we're all moving material around.And so did caltrans have anything to do with removing the vehicles caltrans did a lot to do with removing the vehicles.These vehicles were literally buried.There was we found vehicles underneath the mud.Our equipment was in the mud pretty deep and we were using our loaders, our excavators to help drag out the trucks and the cars.The tow companies were having a hard time.
Wind Snow Rain Cause Traffic Nightmare Along The Grapevine
Could be here well into the night.Andrea thank you.Right now, the grapevine is open and traffic is moving well on interstate five, but that could change if more rain, snow or high wind appear later tonight.Erica has the latest about the important northsouth freeway.It is cold, windy and wet on the grapevine, so drivers are really going to want to watch for black ice overnight into monday morning but a lot of people made the best of it, pulled over and played in the snow.Screams and laughter, the sounds.
Of southern california kids seeing snow for the first time.It's pretty great.Why because.But it wasn't all fun and games through the grapevine sunday.Rain was coming down hard when this big rig overturned on the 5 freeway.Caltrans said several lanes were blocked at smoky bear road backing up traffic for miles.After the rain, truck drivers still worried about the wind.I didn't know it was that strong.Families on road trips felt it too.It was scary, all windy.They bundled up for the kind of cold we just aren't used to.
Wrestling Moves KOLATCOM Wrist Lat Elevator Defense
Another defensive finish out of this position is a wrist and lat elevator.My opponent's taken a high c once again.He shoots in, he drives up to his feet so i transfer him inside to that single leg position.Now, instead of going to that whizzer we go right to that lat.And as we're doing that, here's what you always remember, it's opposite lat opposite wrist so you don't get confused.I don't attack this arm.I attack this lat and i go under and i capture the wrist on the other side here.So this hand captures wrist this captures.
Lat.And now i take make ankle and i stick it right up in his crotch.I don't want to go any deeper than that.I want to have the longest lever possible.And now this is always the misconception on elevators.There's not a straight back, not that we can't get away with it, but you wanna have a rotation.And what i mean by that is i've blocked and i wanna step outside and rotate.I don't want to kick my opponent straight over my head.So, i hop.I elevate.And now soon as we hit i release that lat and i got a post hand so.
