Landslide claims part of northeast Missouri highway

HANNIBAL, Mo. | Part of state Highway 79 in northeast Missouri has given way to the elements, and it's unclear when the road will be repaired.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reported Monday that a cracked segment of the highway south of Ashburn slid down a hill, a week after the Missouri Department of Transportation closed it.

MoDOT installed barricades on both sides of the closure and says it's not sure when the road can be repaired.
