Crews rescue 2 people from mudslide along Russian River

MONTE RIO, Calif. -- In the North Bay, drenching rain is saturating hillsides causing mudslides.

ABC30's sister station ABC7 News was on the scene at Bohemian Highway near Monte Rio, not far from Guerneville, where crews rescued two people who got stuck in a big mudslide Tuesday afternoon.

"Well, I fell into the mud when the tree fell over the top of me. It happened so fast you don't even know, you know. It's like I see an image of a tree. It's not there. It's there. You know what I mean," said Kear Koch, mudslide survivor.

The landslide closed bohemian highway indefinitely.

Another section of the road is expected to be closed for weeks due to flooding.
