    The 6-8-feet deep slide in the 9500 block of Bohemian Highway in west Sonoma County occurred around 1 p.m., Baxman said.

    Flood waters also have closed another section of the Bohemian Highway, which is now expected to be closed for weeks, Baxman said.

    No homes were crushed by the slide and no injuries have been reported, Baxman said.
