A mudslide closed a Montgomery County road Tuesday as a Nor’easter stormed over the area.

The slide closed Balligomingo Road between Portland Road and Front Street (Route 23) in West Conshohocken, said West Conshy police Tuesday afternoon.

You could hear trees in the area cracking, said police on the scene.

The road would remain closed until further notice despite not much mud being on the road, said police.

The exact cause of the slide wasn’t clear. The area saw on and off rain – heavy at times – throughout the day Tuesday as a nor’easter struck the region. Crews closed the same stretch of road during a big storm last summer.
