ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Drivers going south from Anchorage are being advised to be careful, as rock slides are still going on near the Seward Highway.

Officers patrolling the Seward Highway are advising travelers to use caution between mile 104-110 on the Seward Highway, according to a statement issued by APD.

Officials said that "rocks continue to slide and the wind in the area is making it hard to see."

This, after the 7.0 magnitude earthquake caused entire sections of the Seward Highway to get shut down due to massive rock slides, one of which almost killed a truck driver.
