Officials with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) said the northbound lanes of I-5 were blocked just north of the Nulle Road interchange by debris in the road.

This is approximately the same location where the northbound lanes had been closed hours earlier due to trees and debris on the roadway.

Initial reports were of 3 vehicles having collided with the debris and possible injuries.

According to Washington State Patrol Trooper Rocky Oliphant, 3 vehicles collided with the debris but there were no serious injuries.

No estimate for reopening the lanes to traffic was available.
