Buncombe Co., N.C. (WSPA) — An early morning mudslide closed a road near Asheville and put nearby residents under a boil water advisory. The boil water advisory was lifted Saturday.
Dispatch confirmed Town Mountain Road was blocked shortly before 8 a.m. Friday.
The road is open again.
NCDOT says the water line break caused the mudslide.
