TDOT crews from across East Tennessee continued work on a massive rock slide in Hawkins County Sunday.

Hawkins County EMA Director Gary Murrell confirmed that they responded to the landslide around 11 Saturday morning. They found a pile of rocks and debris on the roadway.

Neighbors said some people living in the area now have an hour commute to work because of the slide. Tabitha Amyx said the slide happened right behind her house.

'It was traumatic, somebody text me and said are you ok and I said why? She said the mountain slid off," said Amyx.

Highway 70 N is now closed between Highway 94 and Clinch Valley Road. Murrell said that fire crews, EMS, EMA and TDOT responded.

As of now, they are not sure if there are any injuries related to the incident.

It could be days before this section of the highway is back open, according to Murrell. He said that the the road is torn up underneath where the rocks fell, and at last check rocks are still coming down the mountain.
