Boulder Blocks US-19 West

Updated: Monday, January 21 2013, 03:42 PM EST

Persistent rain loosened a boulder the size of a small house, dropping it on a mountain highway. Both lanes of US-19 West near Coxes Creek Rd in Yancey County are closed.


The rock was loosened from below a home and knocking power out as it fell. Officials say the boulder broke in three large parts.


Locals say the road closing is a big inconvenience.


The NCDOT hopes to have US-19 West reopened by Friday morning.
