Mudslide closes road near the Ohio River

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The 1800 block of Riverside Drive is temporarily closed after a mudslide on Saturday.

A Utility pole in that vicinity is unstable after the slide, threatening to break or spill wires onto the road. Duke Energy is aware of the problem and plans to replace the pole.

Duke also has been working to restore power to the tens of thousands of homes that lost it during Friday's storms.

No word yet on when the road will reopen.
