Scary video from debris flow near Tehachapi

CBS LA photo from Highway 58 today.

All the attention last night was devoted to Interstate 5 above the Grapevine — a major Interstate completely blocked by mud and debris after a freakishly intense rain deluge. I-5 remains blocked today, but over on State Highway 58, which connects Bakersfield to Mojave through Tehachapi, there are currently dozens of semi-trucks and other vehicles trapped in a debris flow from last night. Here's video as it happens from one of the truckers on Facebook. The audio is pretty intense.
