Mudslide blocks highway southeast of New Ulm

- A highway southeast of New Ulm is closed as crews work to remove debris from a mudslide, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Officials say a "slope failure" happened on Highway 68 Sunday, causing an eight-foot tall mudslide. Trees, branches, dirt and mud now cover the highway near County Road 45 by Courtland, Minn. 

No one was injured in the mudslide.
