At least five mudslides on Saturday, July 3, 2021, closed Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon along the burn scar of the Grizzly Creek fire.

Mudslides have been a part of life on Colorado highways recently. Geologist Paul Santi from the Colorado School of Mines goes inside the ooze. Then, Sen. Brittany Pettersen on a new state law addressing the "hidden need" of paying for diapers. And, Walton Levi works with the government entity aiming to destroy a stockpile of mustard gas in Pueblo by 2023.
