Section of 10 Freeway in Riverside County washed away in flash flood

A part of the 10 Freeway was shut down in Riverside County Wednesday night after it was washed away by seething floodwaters.

At first, the two sides of the 10 Freeway south of Joshua Tree National Park were shut "because of flooding and toppled enormous apparatus," Caltrans posted on Twitter.

In no time before 8 p.m., the westward paths were returned, however the eastward paths stayed shut "until additional notification" because of the waste of time displayed beneath.

Photographs showed water moving through a huge, profound cut in the highway, alongside segments of seepage pipe that were overpowered by the floodwaters.

Caltrans recommended taking State Route 62 to the 10 Freeway into Whitewater as a diversion.

Meanwhile, Caltrans said teams dealt with a diversion for those generally stuck.

"Chipping away at diversion for individuals at present there. It will be somewhat of a pause, crisis administrations are making an honest effort," Caltrans said.

"As of now, individuals are being coordinated of EB I-10 at Corn Springs, and rerouted back onto I-10 going WB. Extra diversion is SR-111 to I-8 to AZ," the office added.

A blaze flood cautioning was supposed to stay set up in San Bernardino County until 12:15 a.m. Thursday, as per the National Weather Service.
