Mudslide forces some residents out in Logan County

LYBURN, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Department of Transportation says crews are making progress on opening up a Logan County roadway that was cut off by a mudslide.
   Officials say the Division of Highways intend to have the roadway open to traffic on Thursday.
   Authorities temporarily removed three dozen residents from their homes last week after a hillside gave way and cut off access to the road.
   Emergency crews continue to transfer residents to and from their homes by boat along the Guyandotte River.
   Food and supplies also are being delivered to families who chose to remain in their homes.  For those who left, hotel rooms, rental cars and food are being provided.
   Officials say crews also are moving forward to build a causeway across the river.
