CANNON BEACH, Ore. – A landslide has closed U.S. Highway 101 in both directions 5 miles south of Cannon Beach.

The state Department of Transportation said Wednesday morning that crews are ready to clear the slide, but must wait for experts to finish examining the situation.

The road is expected to be closed for most of the morning and possibly longer.
