BOISE -- A high wind advisory and steady rainfall caused some issues on Idaho highways Sunday.

The Idaho Transportation Department reported a mudslide on Highway 95, 14 miles south of Riggins. The road was closed for more than an hour while crews worked to clear debris.

A KTVB viewer sent in pictures of a crash resulting from a rockslide just north of Riggins Sunday morning. We're told the driver was not injured, but the road was closed for some time.

Meanwhile in Oregon, high winds and blowing dust up to 95 miles per hour on Highway 95 South made for dangerous conditions for drivers near Burns.
