    Officials say a 100-ton mudslide has closed a western Pennsylvania road.

    Allegheny County Public Works employees say days of rain contributed to the mudslide on Pitcairn Road in Monroeville.

    That's about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh.

    Allegheny County spokeswoman Amie Downs says crews cleared the trees and mud but decided to keep the road closed because of concerns about more mudslides.

    There were no injuries reported, but an area resident says people are worried about their homes.

    Nick Hauck says the mudslide washed away 20 feet of hillside, and his house is on a nearby hill, too.
