Authorities are warning of continuing danger on the Seward Highway near Indian after a rockslide Saturday evening slowed traffic for several hours.

The slide, reported around 7 p.m., was cleared by state crews before 11 p.m., Anchorage police said. Nobody was hurt.

"While the area has been cleared …, the terrain at the top remains unstable and may pose a risk for another landslide," police said in an alert. "APD is patrolling the area and DOT is monitoring the situation."
