Officials say another mudslide has struck Highway 36 in Carroll Co.

Posted: Updated:

CARROLL COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) -- Highway 38 West is open again after a mudslide shut down part of the road over the weekend.

According to the Carrollton Police Department, the slide is less than one mile from another mudslide that occurred this past week. The slide is located near 1500 Highway 36 West.

Carroll County Emergency Management Director Ed Webb says the slide is not as bad as the one that happened last week. 

According to Webb the new slide that occurred on Sunday evening is about three-tenths of a mile from the one that happened Friday morning.

Webb said by phone, "the bank had settled a couple of years ago and [it looks like] water has been saturating down between where it had settled before and where it had not settled."  

Carroll County Emergency Management has been monitoring the previous mudslide every two hours and they say they haven't noticed anymore shifting.

Kentucky Utilities crews are working to clear some trees that shifted in the slide and are now hanging over power lines.
