On The Wrong Track
Description: This photo taken along the Union Pacific Tracks by the Arroyo Las Posas in Somis, CA.
After 5 days of heavy rain (14.38 inches at my station in Altadena) this river undermined the tracks and left them hanging high and dry.
Unfortunately it took Fiber Optic Cables with it. AT&T, MCI, Sprint and Level 2 all experienced outages related to this slide. Restoration operations are in progress.
