INDEX, Wash. -

 The Snohomish County sheriff's office says workers continue to remove debris from a mudslide that blocked a road near Index Tuesday night, isolating some homes.

Spokeswoman Shari Ireton says cars are being allowed through one at a time on Mount Index River Road, so residents are no longer isolated.

There are about two dozen homes in the area, but many are vacation cabins.

The work is being handled by a homeowners association that owns the road covered by the slide.
