MALIBU — A scenic stretch of Pacific Coast Highway west of Malibu has been closed because of a rock and mud slide as record rains soak Southern California.

The California Highway Patrol says PCH was shut down at about 8:10 p.m. Sunday because of the slide near the border of Los Angeles and Ventura counties some 40 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles. No one was hurt.

There’s a CHP roadblock at Yerba Buena Road and PCH in Ventura County, about two miles west of the Malibu city limits. Eastbound traffic is being stopped at Las Posas Road and PCH in the Point Mugu area.

It’s unclear when the highway would reopen.

A steady weekend soaking has left the region awash with flooded roadways.

The National Weather Service says Sunday’s rainfall records include 3.45 inches in Pasadena, 3.2 inches in San Gabriel and 2.3 inches in downtown Los Angeles.
