Heavy rain that moved through the metro is creating more problems Thursday night.

Highway 13 between Wachtler Ave. and Sylvandale Rd. is closed indefinitely due to mudslides, covering the roadway in Mendota Heights. This is the fourth time the mudslide has happened on this stretch of road Thursday.

Highway 13 between Second Street and Lexington Avenue near Mendota was closed for emergency repairs earlier this month. The closure was necessary so crews could repair a slope that was damaged during the recent rain.
