IOWA CITY, Iowa - Crews are working to clean-up after a mudslide near Mayflower Hall on the University of Iowa Campus.

The mud caused an access road to the hall to be closed last night. Crews arrived on the scene around 11:30 p.m Wednesday night. A residence hall director tells TV-9 the mud surrounded, but did not cover several vehicles.

There's no word yet on the amount of damage from the mud.
