“Due to high call volumes, owners are asked to please be patient when trying to find out information about their vehicles,” said a brief news statement from MOTI.
Owners will be required to show government-issued picture ID to pick up their vehicles.
Very early on Friday morning, crews spent several hours moving the abandoned vehicles stranded by the mudslide between Hope and Agassiz. By mid-morning, the CRCC’s parking lot was still mostly full. While the vehicles at the CRCC had clearly been through rough, muddy weather, most appeared to be intact and relatively undamaged.
