Stevens Pass reopens after snow slides

Update, 4:50 p.m. Wednesday: Officials say U.S. 2 has reopened at Stevens Pass.
SEATTLE -- Avalanche danger and snowslides have interrupted traffic across two major Washington Cascades mountain passes.
State Transportation Department officials closed Stevens Pass on Tuesday evening due to multiple snowslides. No vehicles were caught in those slides. Officials said U.S. 2 was reopened over Stevens Pass Wednesday afternoon.
Earlier Tuesday, Interstate 90 traffic over Snoqualmie Pass starting moving again at about noon after an 11-hour closure for avalanche danger.
Transportation Department spokesman Mike Westbay in Yakima says the Snoqualmie Pass danger was created by heavy rain falling on the nearly 34 inches of snow that fell at the pass over the weekend.
