According to Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons, a portion of highway 421 in the Stone Creek area is now closed from a mudslide.

He says crews from the Virginia Department of Transportation are now on scene.

These pictures were sent to News 5 by Ronnie Baxter and Erika Wilson.

Both lanes in the area are closed. Sheriff Parsons also says because the mudslide is next to the north fork of the Powell River, there is no way to get around the damage.

No injuries were reported.
